    Suite-Style Living

    We know that having the right living arrangements will be an important part of your overall college experience. Eight state-of-the-art, suite-style residential buildings provide more than 3,500 beds, with each building offering four to six different styles of living units. All buildings include the following:

    • individual bathrooms in each suite
    • high-speed wired and wireless Internet connections
    • microwaves and refrigerators in each suite
    • suite options with living spaces that range from 300 to 1,000 square feet
    • individually controlled air conditioning and heating units
    • trash disposal and laundry facilities on each wing and each floor
    • indoor bicycle storage rooms
    • carpeting

    Besides offering some of the most comfortable housing accommodations on any college or university campus, the suites are designed as living-learning facilities (see below), connecting students to resources that ultimately help promote academic success. Amenity spaces—conveniently located on the ground floor or first floor of the suites—house a variety of academic and student-support offices. In addition, specially designed study and resource rooms on each floor are used for academic and personal enrichment activities, such as tutoring, study sessions, academic advising, lectures, resource sharing, performances, exhibits, and displays. 

    Eight suite-style residential buildings are available:

    Living-Learning Communities

    Research has shown that learning is an active and dynamic process that extends beyond the confines of the classroom. At IUP, we recognize the educational potential of our residential facilities and, accordingly, offer a variety of specific and intentional learning experiences in them.

    As you complete your on-campus housing application, you will undoubtedly be looking for a living arrangement that is a good match for you and gives you a connection to others sharing similar goals and interests. Living-learning communities offer residents an opportunity to interact with others who share related academic, career, or personal perspectives and ambitions, while allowing a chance for residents to participate in special academic and co-curricular programming designed especially for them.
