Undergraduate Student Housing

  • Undergraduate students must live on campus.
  • On-campus housing is in great demand, so you are encouraged to fill out the deposit form as early as possible to secure a space. To learn more about on-campus living and view residence halls and rooms, visit Residential Life.
  • Please note that there is no bedding provided upon arrival, so please bring with you a minimum of $30-$50 U.S. Dollar cash to purchase bedding, basic supplies, and food for the first couple of nights in the residence hall.
    • For summer and fall arrivals, you can wait for a couple of months before purchasing a heavier blanket.
    • If you arrive in the winter, you will need to allow for more cash to purchase a heavier blanket immediately. You should also bring some warm clothing with you.
