Campus Living

Our on-campus residence halls allow first-year students to live solo in a single room or cohabitate in a double.

Undergraduate Housing

There is so much more to on-campus living than a new address, and Housing & Residential Education is here to help. By living on campus, you will take part in a program designed to enrich your your life by allowing you to explore areas of interest including entrepreneurship, social justice, engineering, leadership, fine arts, global engagement, science, and so much more.

We encourage you to explore the varying housing options for undergraduate students here.

Living Learning Communities

One way to deepen your engagement at the U is through a variety of special living options like Living Learning Communities (LLCs) and Themed Communities (TCs). Each type of special living option is designed to bring together students with similar interests, majors, goals, and experiences.

Graduate Housing

Housing & Residential Education supports graduate students in a variety of housing locations, including:

  • Lassonde Studios
  • Downtown Commons 1
  • Downtown Commons 2

Graduate students must maintain continual enrollment throughout the academic year and summer.
