Halls and Apartments

The Office of Housing & Residence Life manages our campus’ seven traditional residence halls, three apartment complexes and one suite-style high-rise building.

Home to more than 3,500 students, our communities offer a variety of living options from single student residence hall rooms to six-bedroom apartments and even residential Learning Communities – where you’ll live with other students sharing your same major and interests.

Residence Life's housing initiatives are a response to the needs and changing preferences of our students reflected by surveys, pilot studies and continuing consultation with residence hall and campus apartment students. Most students are assigned to coed side-by-side housing as this is the most common and preferred type of housing available. Students may be randomly assigned to any of these areas to fill vacancies even though they have not specifically requested placement there. No matter where you live on-campus, you'll find yourself living comfortably cool since all our rooms have central air or wall/window air conditioners.
