Living on Campus

Whether you live in one of our traditional residence halls, contemporary residence halls, suite-style halls, or one of our unique Victorian houses, you'll find that our staff works hard to maintain a living environment that fosters both academic success and personal development. As a resident student, you have the opportunity to extend your education beyond the classroom. You can take the concepts and ideas you learn in class and test them out in a supportive environment. In the process, you'll learn more about yourself and those around you.

Types of On-Campus Housing

Traditional Residence Halls

Traditional Residence Halls house the majority of first-year students and offer the best environment for them to learn about campus, get to know each other, and live the traditional residence experience with their fellow classmates. Traditional halls consists of doubles, triples, and in a few cases quads. The halls (with the exception of Van Winkle, which is all female) are co-educational by floor or wing. Each floor or wing has its own single-sex bathroom for residents of that community. The three traditional halls on campus are McClelland Hall, Van Winkle Hall, and Woodland Hall.

Contemporary Residence Halls

Contemporary style residence halls consist of quads (adjoining double rooms connected by a private bathroom). The halls are co-educational, but a single-sex environment is maintained in each quad room and in most cases hall floors are a mix of female and male students.

Suite-Style Residence Halls

Suite-Style residence halls offer a spacious living environment with the added convenience of a common area, small kitchenette, and bathroom(s) to share with your roommates. Suite-style housing is typically reserved for upper-class students. A six-person suite consists of two double rooms, two single rooms, and two bathrooms. A five-person suite consists of one triple room, one double room, and one bathroom. A four-person suite consists of two double rooms and one bathroom.

Victorian Houses

Resident houses offer a unique on-campus living experience. Each house is individual in style and brings forth a sense of history and community. Fireplaces, crown moldings, and beautiful glass work are just some of the unique touches that can be found throughout the Victorian era inspired homes. The houses accommodate between 12 and 40 students.
