About Housing

The residence halls and Northern View Community apartments are great places to find your niche on campus. Whether you're a new first-year, transfer or returning student, life on campus is full of opportunities to get engaged. When you live on campus, you have the distinct advantage of being surrounded by resources at your fingertips to help you achieve success.

Living on campus with our 3,500 other residents allows you to meet people from different cultures, countries and ethnic backgrounds who may become lifelong friends. You can also forge relationships with staff who are here to support you along your journey. Residence hall communities are where you can live with other students and socialize with others who share your academic and career interests. Partnerships with faculty and student support centers enable you to learn where you live.

You are also afforded the convenience of residential computer labs, dining centers, classrooms, centralized tutoring and writing centers and social areas. Your residence hall or apartment is your new home and we're excited to have you as part of the community!

We're committed to helping you develop leadership skills to equip you for a successful academic journey and professional career. You can participate in the Residence Hall Association (RHA) and individual Community Councils, which are your student voice on campus. We look forward to your engagement with your living environment.
