On-Campus Housing for Upperclass Students – 2021-22

Campus Housing Availability

Houses

On-campus, seven-person houses consisting of single, double, and triple rooms (select houses) are being made available to upperclass students as general housing and not in their typical living-learning unit format. Standard room rates apply and there will not be an additional living-learning fee or any programmatic elements. Individuals living in the houses are not required to be on a meal plan and may remain on campus over break periods without needing to meet any sort of criteria, which is an added benefit. While the houses are furnished, they will not be supplied with cookware or utensils.

This option is restricted to rising juniors and seniors only. Preference will go to groups that can fill entire houses and individuals thereafter. Those returning from study away/abroad will also receive special consideration.

Inquire about availability in the houses for the term in which you are requesting housing for more details.

Residence Halls

Residence hall vacancies are generally limited to suites in Crissey and Severn. There may be select rooms available in Harmon and DeWaters if students move or leave the College after Fall Quarter. Stand-alone singles are very limited.

Inquire about availability in the residence halls for the term in which you are requesting housing for more details.
