Housing, Residential Living, and Dining

Students laugh around a piano while hanging out in Putt Hall

Living on campus is designed just for you. You'll find we're constantly, creatively working to make your on-campus life amazing.

The Perfect Location

You're right in the middle of it all—close to classes, dining, events, and more. When you're moving through a busy day, it really pays off. You can stop at your suite between classes or grab something to eat with your meal plan—it's so convenient.

Sink Your Teeth Into Tasty Options

Craving your favorites? Ready to be more adventurous and try something new?

Take in the tempting variety of foods available to you from college classics like pizza, burgers, and salads, to tempting new dishes you can't wait to try. You'll find we have vegan options, steak nights, and national brands like Starbucks, Chick-fil-A, and more.

Meet New People, Feel at Home

You'll find meeting new people and feeling at home comes easily here. Choose a Living-Learning Community based on your interests, and you've already got something in common with the person next door. Take it a step further with Living-Learning Linked Communities that are set up so you'll take a class or two together.
