It's Time to Choose Your Experience for the 2017-2018 Academic Year
Now's the time to start thinking about choosing your on-campus living experience for next year. The application and contract are now available, and the earlier you complete them, the better. As a current resident, you're able to step in and reserve your space before we open the contract to new students. You have to act now, though!
Students who wish to live in one of our residences will have a new option this coming year: the "Hybrid Apartment." It's a blend of apartment-style living and residence hall convenience. Each resident occupies one of four single bedrooms but shares the two bathrooms, common living room, kitchen and laundry facilities with other roommates.
