Home Sweet Home

When you’re here, you’re home. We keep saying it because we mean it. College is a time of big transitions and for many students, it’s their first experience living away from home. Not only do we want the transition to be smooth, but it’s important that you find a comfortable, safe home away from home.

 

The Details

We’re a highly residential campus with approximately 2,500 students living on campus each year, meaning you’ve got a built-in community right here on campus. From the sprawling South Fork Suites to the newly-renovated May Hall, we feature 11 residence halls designed to provide you with a terrific residential experience.

 

We’re Vibrant

Our residence halls are vibrant communities bursting with opportunities to participate in floor and hall programs. Resident Assistants and residence life staff plan a variety of social and educational events throughout the year, creating plenty of chances for you to meet people and develop bonds with your hall or floormates. We’re also home to a variety of Living and Learning Communities, including first-year, honors, healthy living and gender inclusive communities, that you can choose to reside in.

 

We’re Safe

Residence hall doors are locked 24/7 with the exception of designated move-in and move-out times. Resident Assistants monitor student safety, residence life staff is on call each evening to respond to emergencies and University Police are also available around the clock for emergencies and crisis response.

 

We’re Convenient

There are SO many perks to living on campus, including proximity to your classes! All halls include:

 

  • Fully furnished rooms
  • High-speed wireless internet
  • Free unlimited laundry
  • Cable TV (including HBO)
  • Facilities for students with disabilities
  • Trash/recycling
  • Parking lots near halls
  • Short walk to class
  • Common spaces for cooking, studying and socializing
  • Smoke-free facilities

Commuter Policy

Live close to campus? If you live at your permanent address with your parent(s) or a legal guardian and your residence is within the approved commuting zip codes (or within 40 miles as verified on Google Maps), then you can request to commute. View the full policy or check your zip code.

 

2-Year Residency Policy

We require first and second-year students to live in university residence halls. This policy doesn’t apply to you if you are 21 years of age or older or graduated from high school two years prior to the start of the housing contract. Veterans, married students or students with extenuating financial circumstances can request exemption from this policy. See more information and exemption request forms.

 

Parking

Students (including first-year students) may purchase a residential or commuter parking permit. Rates vary depending on the lot and are sold on a first-come, first-served basis so if you’re interested, put this on your to-do list!
