Home Sweet Home
When you’re here, you’re home. We keep saying it because we mean it. College is a time of big transitions and for many students, it’s their first experience living away from home. Not only do we want the transition to be smooth, we're committed to creating communities of respect, care and support where all members are celebrated and welcomed.
We’re a highly residential campus with approximately 2,500 students living on campus each year, meaning you’ve got a built-in community right here on campus. From the sprawling South Fork Suites to the newly-renovated May Hall, we feature 11 residence halls designed to provide you with a terrific residential experience.
Our residence halls are vibrant communities bursting with opportunities to participate in floor and hall programs. Resident Assistants and residence life staff plan a variety of social and educational events throughout the year, creating plenty of chances for you to meet people and develop bonds with your hall or floormates. We’re also home to a variety of Living and Learning Communities, including first-year, honors, healthy living and gender inclusive communities, that you can choose to reside in.
Residence hall doors are locked 24/7 with the exception of designated move-in and move-out times. Resident Assistants monitor student safety, residence life staff is on call each evening to respond to emergencies and University Police are also available around the clock for emergencies and crisis response.
There are SO many perks to living on campus, including proximity to your classes! All halls include:
- Fully furnished rooms
- High-speed wireless internet
- Free unlimited laundry
- Facilities for students with disabilities
- Parking lots near halls
- Short walk to class

2-Year Residency Policy
We require first and second-year students to live in university residence halls. This policy doesn’t apply to you if you are 21 years of age or older or graduated from high school two years prior to the start of the housing contract. Veterans, married students, students with extenuating financial or personal circumstances can request exemption from this policy. See more information and exemption request forms.
Students (including first-year students) may purchase a residential or commuter parking permit through our Parking Department. Rates vary depending on the lot and are sold on a first-come, first-served basis so if you’re interested, put this on your to-do list!
