Residence Life & Student Housing

Residence Life and Student Housing offers three different styles of residence hall living: Traditional, Suite style, and Apartment style. The three living styles feature many of the same amenities, but each differs in concept. While all of the housing halls are co-ed, all rooms, suites and apartments are single-gender.

All residents must purchase a meal plan. If you do not select a meal plan, one will be assigned. The minimum required purchase is a Teal Club membership ($1,900 per semester).

Residence Life & Student Housing also offers Family Housing.
