University Housing

The housing of students has been a prime consideration of the University since its founding. The University has two main goals in providing students with housing accommodations on the Grounds. The first is to furnish students with a variety of housing arrangements at reasonable cost. The second is to provide an environment in which each student may achieve the maximum realization of his or her potential--intellectually, socially, and physically. It is expected that attributes such as self-discipline, concern for the rights of others, mental and social maturity, and respect for public and private property will be fostered in group residence situations.

As a part of the University's orientation and advisory system, all students entering any of the undergraduate schools directly from secondary school are required to live in one of the residence houses during their first year. After the first year in residence a student who wishes to live in University housing must enter the priority selection process. Upperclass housing is available in residence halls and apartments and these spaces are awarded through the room selection process. On-Grounds housing is readily available.

Room Reservations   After the entering undergraduate student has been admitted to the University and has returned the housing application to the accommodations office, space is reserved.

The application serves as the student's housing agreement with the University. The student will be notified of the room assignment before the beginning of the session.

Room rent is charged by the semester and is due and payable on or before the day of registration. All rental charges are subject to change.
