College is a time of transition—and a time of preparation.

Living on campus is an outstanding way to prepare for life beyond the college experience. You will learn basic living skills like cooking, laundry, cleaning, and budgeting. When you become part of our housing community, you take advantage of the rich variety of educational, social, cultural, and recreational activities that will help you now and in the future.

Student housing will be open for the fall semester. After much deliberation and consultation with medical authorities, the University will open campus housing to a maximum of 85% occupancy. There will be apartment buildings left intentionally vacant with individual bedrooms and bathrooms reserved for possible quarantine use. Special training and contact tracing protocols will be given to all those who work in Housing and Residence Life, including all resident assistants.
