Residential Living

Traditional Residence Halls – traditional residence halls offer a wonderful environment in which students can learn about the campus, get to know many other students, and share the residential living experience with their peers.  Traditional residence halls consist primarily of double and triple rooms, with a limited number of singles and quads, and most students living in traditional residence halls will make use of shared, common bathrooms (that are specifically designated for either males or females ).  Most first-year students will be assigned to traditional residence halls.  

Contemporary Residence Halls – contemporary residence halls consist of quads, made up of two double rooms connected by a bathroom shared by the four residents.

Suite-Style Residence Hall – suite-style residence halls consist of two or four bedrooms, along with a common living area, a small kitchenette, and one or two bathrooms.
