Types of Housing
More than 1700 students can live on campus in our traditional residence halls, suite
style hall, and apartment complexes. Costs and living configurations vary depending
on how many roommates you have and what type of space you choose.
TRADITIONAL RESIDENCE HALLS
Offering the best opportunity for new students to make friends and be involved in
the community on campus, these are where most students live. Typically, two roommates
share a room, with a common bathroom located on each floor.
Located in the heart of campus, Smith Hall is within close walking distance of the
most popular campus destinations from the PUB to Bentley Dining Hall, Stevenson Library,
and many campus academic buildings.
Home to upperclassmen, Campus Village is within short walking distance of both Main
and East Campus. The apartment style rooms offer the space you need to live independently
and complete your education.
Evergreen Commons offers student apartments in close proximity to Main and East campus.
The variety of floor plans, numerous amenities, and thriving resident community make
Evergreen Commons a great off-campus option for upperclassmen.
