Choose on-campus housing!

Fall is the time to reapply for housing!

In addition to the crunchy leaves and chillier temperatures, fall means it's time to start discussing your student's plans for next year's on-campus housing. Our 2017-18 fall housing sign-ups start November 8 but October is a good time to encourage your student to think about choosing roommates and pre-registering for the housing process.

Initial log-on for pre-registration and group formation for roommates starts October 21. Being proactive and informed about the housing process will ensure a smooth continuation of your students on-campus residential life. For more information and important dates about our housing process.

Why live on campus?

Studies continue to show a higher degree of satisfaction with the college experience as well as higher graduation rates with students who live on campus. Residential communities offer more opportunities to interact with other students, staff and faculty in a safe, supportive environment. Avoid parking hassles with classes that are generally within walking distance or readily accessible via our green or blue buses. Meals are fresh and quick to pick up with a meal plan, which leaves your student plenty of time to invest in more studious endeavors. Living on-campus is like living at home only with a bigger family to look out for you.

Residential Learning Communities

Want another reason why living on campus is great? Each of our residential communities has their own learning communities, with classes and experiences designed around your student’s interests. Is your student focused on health and wellness, engineering, social activism, service learning, entrepreneurship? We have all those and many more >

Learn more about each learning community on the area's web pages. Your student will be able to apply for a learning community when they go through the housing process. Most learning communities will request additional information  –  see each community's living and learning page for more details.

Really, why live anywhere else?
