Thinking of joining a fraternity or sorority?

Of the 90 chapters on campus, 55 offer housing. Each facility is privately owned and operated, with rates comparable to other living options. Once you’ve been granted membership into the house of your choice, living with your new sisters or brothers makes for great bonding.

Transfers have options too.

Our campus offers university residence halls, graduate upper-division halls, Private Certified Housing, and pet-friendly university-owned apartments.

For those who must live in housing owned or certified by the university, don't worry—you’re not limited! You have many choices in our undergraduate halls, including Scott Hall, which houses our popular Transfer Community, and Bousfield Hall, which caters to sophomores through seniors.

If you've lived in a residence hall before, you may be eligible to live off campus. Please check with the Housing Information Office before securing housing with a private landlord. If you live in an off-campus apartment, you may still wish to purchase a meal plan to stay connected on campus.
