A home away from home.
We know that the needs of our residents differ from student to student, so University Housing works to provide diverse living options and inclusive housing for everyone. Some of these communities require that you apply in advance, which you may do so after completing the Housing and Dining Preference section on the Housing Gateway, linked on this page.
If you anticipate or experience any disability-related barriers related to living on campus, please speak with Ann Hoffman, University Housing Assistant Director so you may discuss ways to ensure full access. If you determine that additional disability-related accommodations are necessary, please contact and provide your medical documentation to the Disability Services Office.
