On campus residence halls are the closest you can live to your classes.  Halls are located on East and West sides of campus with academic buildings in the center.

Living in the residence halls is available throughout the academic year and in the summer.  All breaks, except J-term are included in the residence hall contract.  Students wanting to stay over winter break/J-term can do so by signing a J-term contract.  Students who are taking classes, doing research on campus, or are working on campus in the summer can also live in the summer residence hall.

Flexible

Residence Life supports student's decisions to leave for a semester due to studying abroad, student teaching, or an internship without being locked into a lease or needing to sublet your room.

Studying Abroad: Current students who plan to study abroad for Fall 2016 should contact Residence Life to have their housing deposit "held" for the Spring 2016 semester.
