With Seniority Comes Selection
As an upper-classman, you'll get to choose your room first, and will have more alternatives, including suite- and apartment-style rooms. More single rooms are available if you need solitude to hit the books. You'll also find common areas, such as lounges and laundry, throughout the communities. Resident Advisors live on site, and they'll answer your questions and provide support.
We have nine suite-style halls representing a variety of floor plans. Some suites have bedroom entries from the main hallway and share a bathroom with one other room. Others have hallway entrances, with two to four bedrooms, and up to four residents share a bathroom.
Most bedrooms are doubles or singles. A handful of suites have kitchenettes (sink, microwave, small refrigerator). However, if you live in a suite, you must buy a meal plan.

Slightly more than half of our residential upper-class students live in one of our six apartment-style complexes, which have a variety of floor plans. These fully furnished units have full kitchens, dining areas, living rooms, bathrooms, and a combination of bedrooms, ranging from two singles to three doubles. Most units house four people; some will be home to two or six.
All bedrooms are double or single occupancy, and most residents are juniors and seniors.
If you live in an apartment, you can choose to buy a voluntary meal plan, but it's not required.
