Residence Halls

Discover your home away from home!
New Student Housing

New-student housing is substance-free, traditional, corridor-style halls housing between 40 to 100 students. All new-student housing is within close proximity to the dining-hall, student mailboxes, and athletic venues. Incoming students are placed in double rooms with a roommate.

First-Year Living Learning Communities

The Living Learning Communities provide a living space where students share an academic and co-curricular experience. Students will be engaged in structured activities within the residence environment and will interact with faculty and peers. 

Upperclass Housing

Our upperclass halls are co-ed. These halls house between 40 to 139 students. Living arrangements range from traditional, corridor-style residence halls to suites with a bathroom, shared bedroom with a bathroom, single room, and apartments with a bath and an efficiency kitchenette. Some of the halls alternate female/male by floors, while others alternate by room. The mission of the villages (apartment-style living) is to prepare mature and responsible junior and senior students for the more independent lifestyle they will experience after graduation.

Graduate Housing

Graduate Housing is available upon application on a first come, first serve basis. Some single rooms are available as well as a limited number of two-person apartments. Please contact the Office of Residence Life for additional information.
