FAQs- Residence Halls

Do I have to live on campus?

What are the differences between the traditional halls?
Cost and size of rooms are the biggest differences. In Gooding and Williams Halls, 99% of the residents are first-year students and they are the most affordable halls on campus. The halls are co-ed by floor, and residents share common bathroom spaces. Carpenter and Roe Halls are larger doubles, and thus higher in cost. Students of any year may live in this hall, rooms are co-ed by door/room, and residents share common bathroom spaces.

Are single rooms available?
The institution has a handful of medical singles that are offered to residents with written medical documentation indicating their need for living in a single room. Otherwise, single rooms are not offered on campus because all rooms are built to accommodate two residents. Occasionally, after the semester has begun and consolidation is complete, singles may be made available to students wishing to pay the additional cost.
