Block Housing

Block housing allows students to form their own residential experience by choosing a small group of individuals to live adjacent to them. Block housing is different from tradition group housing as the individual rooms or spaces may not be shared, but form a neighborhood of rooms.

For the 2018-2019 academic year, due to student interest, we have expanded our block housing options:

  • Smith will continue to have two full towers designated as upper-class block housing. In the remaining tower, the second and third floors will also now be block housing options. In Smith, the towers will continue to consist of 8- and 4-student blocks living in two-room doubles. For example, a 4-person block will consist of 2 suites, with 2 blocks on each floor. An 8-person block will occupy the entire floor of the tower.
  • Stillman house will be designated as an 8-person block.
  • The second and third floors of Rzasa will also each have an 8-person block option.
