Each year our housing facilities fill to capacity with freshmen and upperclass students.
Freshmen live in first year areas including First Year Suites, Merry Jo Brandimore House, and the Living Centers. Special interest groups are also created for those freshmen who want to a more structured first year with a cohort program. While all freshman living has kitchenettes, freshmen (First Time in College students) must participate in one of three meal plans as part of the contract.
Upperclass (beyond the first year), new transfers, and other categories of students are assigned to the Living Centers, University Village and Pine Grove areas. Affinity and global experiences are options for students as they continue the residential years.
Adding to the quality of the experience, our Residential Life staff is dedicated to promoting a sense of belonging and community in our housing facilities. Professionals and para-professionals live within our housing areas to educate students outside the classroom and provide connections to engage in campus activities; they also maintain the community standards through policy enforcement and navigate relations between residents.
