Housing and Dining

As a student, you need a safe environment that gives you privacy, quiet time and a place to keep your stuff. You also need a place where you can feel comfortable hanging out with your friends, listening to music or doing whatever it is you do to relax. You will find just the environment you need in our three dormitories and 300 apartments.

You can find a lot of great information about living on campus in the Campus Living Guide.
