Explore Our Residence Halls!


Amongst the 40 residence halls, we offer traditional, suite, apartment-style, and affiliated apartment-style residence halls. Each hall has its own unique personality and opportunities for its residents. Take a look inside our First Year Residence Halls, and our Upper Level Residence Halls, including galleries and virtual tours of each residence hall.

Styles and pricing vary, so be sure to review all the options before selecting the hall that best suits your personal preferences.


Beginning in early June, students who apply before May 1 will be allowed to select their residence hall and room through the Housing Portal during a designated selection day and time. This is where you also go through the roommate grouping process and gender-inclusive housing if you require it.

When submitting your application

Before submitting your housing application, you are required to pay a non-refundable application fee. This will be applicable as of Academic Year 2024/ 2025. 


After submitting your housing application, you have the option to apply for a Residential Learning Community (RLC). RLCs provide our residential students with unique living environments that help students engage with others of similar interests. These themed communities are staffed by faculty members who have experience in that field.

The priority deadline date to apply for housing is May 1, and students will be notified by the middle of May of their acceptance into an RLC or Residential Learning Program.
