Explore Upperclass Housing

First-year students, sophomores, and juniors are required to live on campus unless they live with their parents or are over the age of 25. Upperclass students have several options for housing on campus. Options include traditional residence halls comprised of mainly double rooms with some singles and triples, apartment style living in North Village or Garden Apartments, and college-owned houses located on Pennsylvania Avenue bordering campus. Students may apply to live in substance-free areas or affinity housing. Other areas are reserved for members of a particular fraternity or sorority to live together as a group.
