Living as part of a community is one of the most enjoyable and beneficial parts of residential campus living. All halls are coed. Students who wish to live in a specific community are encouraged to submit their residence hall contract with community preferences as soon as possible because these spaces are assigned based on the date the student signed their housing contract.
As a new student, we invite you to participate in one of our residential learning communities. Learning Community members choose to live in the same residence hall and take several classes with their floor members. Read more about the benefits of learning communities!

Healthy Living Community
We also offer a Healthy Living Community. This environment supports and nurtures healthy lifestyle choices and encourages students to make wise decisions that will impact their academic, social and emotional well-being. While illegal drugs, smoking and underage drinking are prohibited in all residence halls, our Healthy Living Community is offered to students who agree to ensure that no alcohol, illegal drugs, or tobacco products are allowed anywhere on the floor.
A Healthy Living Agreement must be signed by all residents who reside in this community.
Students assigned to First-Year (FY) Communities have first-year students as roommates. FY Communities are offered in both East and West residential areas, and new students are automatically assigned to these spaces until they reach capacity. The majority of new students live in FY Communities. Students living in FY Communities relocate to other floors/halls their second year.
Global Living Community
This community is intended to provide both international and domestic students with opportunities to learn more about world events, improve understanding of global perspectives, practice foreign language skills, and plan for a future career involving international work or service. International students and students from the U.S. will reside in the hall. This globally focused community is a partnership between International Student Services (ISS) and the Department of Residence Life.
