There are four buildings primarily designated for first-year students, with a few wonderful themed-living communities.

A lounge and a conference room are located on the first floor.

Watch this short video to see what our current students have to say about our first year residence halls and to gather decorating tips for August.
All first-year residence halls are coed to varying degrees: by floor, wing or alternating room. Students can indicate their preference on the housing questionnaire.
The Housing Questionnaire gives the Office of Residence Life and Involvement information about you – your interests and personal preferences – to help match you with a compatible roommate. Residential students should fill out the questionnaire as soon as possible to help staff make assignments. The priority deadline for submitting a Housing Questionnaire is May 15; after this date, questionnaires will be accepted on a rolling basis.
Students who know who they want to live with have the opportunity to request a roommate. To make an official match, both students must list each other on their housing questionnaire. If you find someone you want to room with after you’ve filled out your questionnaire, no problem – just email the Office of Residence Life and Involvement at email@example.com. If you don’t have a specific roommate request, that’s okay too. Based on your housing questionnaire, our staff will pair you with someone with similar responses. Keep in mind that there are no perfect matches; however, we have had positive results with our roommate matching system.
Students who require a special housing accommodation for a disability must contact Kristin Wharton in the Office of Disability Support Services at firstname.lastname@example.org to begin the request for accommodations. For more information about Disability Services, please visit our Disability Support Services website.
Once you’ve been paired with your roommate, the Residence Life and Involvement staff will then assign you to a building and a room. All of our first-year residence halls offer different experiences. Although we have residence halls of varying sizes, ages, and amenities, our research has shown that overall student satisfaction has little to do with where a student lives. All housing assignments are made at random.
