Campus Housing Options
Traditional Residence Halls
Traditional Residence Halls offer multiple occupancy rooms (doubles, triples and quads) that students share with one, two or three other students. Students living in this type of housing share a community bathroom with several toilet stalls, shower stalls and sinks. Traditional residence halls offer single-gender rooms and are coeducational by floor or section. All first-year students live in traditional residence halls.
Single rooms are located in traditional residence halls. Students living in this type of housing do not have a roommate, but still share a community bathroom with other students. There are a limited number of single rooms available (varies by each residence hall) and most are occupied by upper class students.
Suites have two or more multiple-occupancy bedrooms that share a single bathroom. Some suites also have a common room/space that is shared by suite-mates. Most suites are occupied by juniors and seniors.
Apartments have two or more single and/or multiple-occupancy bedrooms that share a single bathroom and living space/kitchen with a locked entry door. Apartment units are designated as all-male or all-female. Most apartments are occupied by seniors.
Stone Apartments (3 and 5 person) have one or two multiple-occupancy bedrooms that share a single bathroom and living space/kitchen with a locked entry door. Stone apartment units are designated as all-male or all-female. Stone is located on South Quad and is occupied mostly by seniors.
Senior Co-ed Apartments
Senior Co-ed Apartments have four private, lockable single bedrooms, two private lockable bathrooms and a shared living space/kitchen with a locked entry door. Four students of any gender (all male, all female or mixed-gender) choose to live together in these apartments. This type of housing is only available to seniors.
The Homestead is a student-run alternative living community with a focus on ecological sustainability. The Homestead is located just north of campus. This type of housing is only available to upper-class students.
Each of our residential communities offers great amenities:
- Study and/or social lounges
- Laundry facilities (cost included in room fees - no quarters needed!)
- Recreation equipment (billiards, Smart TV, piano, etc.)
- Kitchen with full stove, oven, microwave, and refrigerator
Our residence halls are historical in nature, (also quirky, charming, and recently updated). The variety of room layouts means that room sizes will vary slightly. Also because of this unique nature, we can’t provide specific measurements for rooms, closets, windows, hallways, etc. However, the “standard” room sizes in feet are approximately:
- Single Room = 11x11
- Double Room = 10x14
- Triple Room = 13x19
