Housing

Is there any other on-campus housing, other than the residence halls?
Yes.  A majority of the fraternities and all of the sororities provide housing.  Also, student family housing is available.

When do students find out about roommate and room assignment?
Students will receive confirmation about their housing assignments in mid to late July.  At that time, they will receive additional move-in information.  Assignments are made in order, by date, that the properly completed application, deposit and prepayment or financial aid letter are received.  The Housing Office honors requests whenever possible, subject to available space.

Can students request a specific roommate?
Yes!  There is a space on the housing contract that students can complete to request a specific roommate.  Both students must request each other.

What should students bring?
Students should feel free to bring any posters, pillows, bedspread, towels and other personal items that will make their rooms feel like home.  Stereos, computers and television equipment are welcomed.  Microwaves are not permitted.  Each room is equipped with a bed, desk, chair, chest of drawers, drapes/blinds and closet. Linen service is not included.
