First Year Residence Halls


All first year students are housed in one of the five large Residence Halls. The large residence halls are designed to maximize student interaction and to promote group activities. The living accommodations are designed in a two-room suite arrangement; each room has a private vanity and an adjoining shower/toilet facility. Only one other room shares the shower/toilet. Students are responsible for cleaning their own bathrooms.  The halls have study areas; a recreation room with a TV; pool table, ping-pong table, and foosball table; and a large lobby area with a working fireplace. There is also a laundry room in the basement of each facility. Each room comes with a MicroFridge (microwave/refrigerator unit).

First Year residential students living in one of the five First Year Residence Halls have the opportunity to join a RealWorld Interest Group.

Laurel, Maple, and Oak Halls feature commuter rooms for First Year students who don't live on campus.
