Housing information and contract

Dorm - studentIf you intend to live in a residence hall, we recommend that you submit the housing contract and deposit by June 15. You may submit after the recommended date but your choices may be limited.

Living on campus is a highlight of the college experience. Residents can take advantage of a number of organized activities, meet fellow students and visit many great destinations nearby.

You will have the option to choose a dorm and room type. You will fill out a roommate-compatibility questionnaire and and suggest your preferences for a roommate. (Note: if you live in campus housing you are required by state law to have proof of health insurance.)
