Explore your options with our comparison tool. Then, login to our Housing Portal and choose your hall, suite or apartment for next year! You do have 14 days from when you signed your contract to cancel without penalty if you change your mind.

Not sure where you’re living next year? Stay here!

Life on campus is easy, convenient and the only time in your life you get to live with a bunch of your friends and take part in the full college experience – don’t second guess another year!

Plus – utilities are included in all locations (except SUV), contracts are flexible (don’t pay for space when you’re off on an amazing internship) and it’s so easy to get involved when you live in the heart of campus.

Don’t forget – all returners to the halls have the option of the Silver and Bronze meal plans for next year.
