Where can I live?

students walking to apartmentAll Students

Campus apartments are available for all students with the exception of students with families and married students. Each apartment comes fully furnished and has a full-sized living room and kitchen. The campus apartments are located within walking distance of the academic buildings for an added degree of convenience.

Apartment areas are O'Daniel North, O'Daniel South, McDonald East, and McDonald West.


There are apartment buildings in McDonald West that are designated as freshmen only. They are conveniently located next to the Residence Life Community Center.

Residence halls are designed as suites that combine the benefits of traditional residence hall living with popular apartment-style housing and include two-bedrooms and two bathrooms for four students. Residence halls are available to freshmen students only.  Residence halls are Newman, Governors, O'Bannon and Ruston.

Living Learning Communities at USI provide students with an innovative housing opportunity. Communities are designed to help first-year students transition to college, fit interests and needs, and achieve academic and social success. USI offers nine LLCs for students to choose from, including options focused on a particular major or particular student interest.

If you're interested in living in an LLC, complete both the online housing application and LLC application.
