Welcome to housing. Below, there is information for students of all class years regarding room selection, housing policies, and information about each residence. We hope that you can find a space that will work for your needs!
Each year during Winter Semester, the Office of Residence Life and Health Education administers a variety of processes through which current students may select housing for the following year. This includes options such as:
- Off-Campus Housing
- Theme Houses
- On-Campus Suites
In addition to these specialized housing options there is the general housing lottery for the majority of students.
- Residence & Roommate Selection
- First-Year Residences
- What to Bring
- Residence Electronic Access Policy & Student Residence Keys
There are also important housing processes outside of the lotteries and housing options mentioned above. These procedures are generally special cases, such as:
- Winter Room Selection
- Short Term Housing
- Summer Housing
With over 20 Houses and hundreds of dorm rooms to choose from, finding the best space for you may seem overwhelming. Look through your many great options in the full housing tour with both specific house and room information and floor plans.
