Choosing a Residence Hall and Room Placement
There are many things to think about when thinking about where you want to live on campus. Roommates are important, but so is the building you live in. Think about your values, habits and preferred environments. We have wellness living, residence halls for students with high GPAs and more traditional “dorm-style” buildings as well. Most first-year students live in one of the larger dorms, which helps create and solidify new relationships and a sense of community, but there are other options as well.
Before completing a housing contract, there are a few things about housing selection you should know.
- Please take some time to look over residence hall descriptions before requesting a particular building.
- We recommend submitting your housing contract as soon as you can after . For the most part, we assign rooms to incoming students on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Single Rooms and Special Requests
For some students, a private room is necessary in order to live successfully on campus. Students wishing prioritization for a single room should do two things:
Indicate “requesting a single room” on the housing contract, and fill in details why.
Provide separate documentation of why there is a need. Generally, we recognize health (including mental health) and learning issues as possible reasons for prioritizing a single room. We strongly recommend students complete a disclosure form for any disabilities.
Students who have a disability will receive first priority if the appropriate office agrees it is necessary. If single rooms remain, they will be assigned first-come, first-serve.
