Residence Halls

Our residence halls are more than buildings; they're state of the art living and learning centers. We have nine different residence halls on campus with a choice of traditional or suite-style living options. Traditional corridor-style living has rooms that open into an interior hallway with shared bathroom facilities on each floor. Suite-style living includes 2 or 3 rooms joined by a common living area and shares bathroom facilities.
