Residence Halls

Students living in Residence Halls are embedded in a learning community of diverse interests and lifestyles. With 13 halls to choose from and a mixture of special interest and lifestyle floors, students are encouraged to explore, connect, and learn in this supported living environment.

Located on campus, Residence Halls are a community connected by a set of underground tunnels with easy access to dining, postal services, and Residence Life support staff. Each floor has Resident Advisors who facilitate social gatherings and offer personal and developmental support to students.

Special Interest & Lifestyle Housing

If you're passionate about a field of study or a special topic, you may want to live in one of our seven special interest houses (floors in our residence halls). If you want the variety of people and experiences gained from living in a residence hall but like the idea of floors designed for a particular lifestyle, consider choosing a lifestyle floor.
