A safe, comfortable environment

Study lounge in Thornton HouseDid you know that more than 85% of first-year students live on campus? There are a few good reasons for that. Not only do you get a guaranteed place to live, you'll also make friends faster, have convenient access to your classes, and get better grades. Other benefits of living on campus include:

  • easy access to the dining hall and other campus amenities and services
  • a quiet place to study, read, and sleep
  • extra support from residence assistants, assistant dons, academic mentors, house executives, and a live-in adult don

We understand that every student is different. That's why we provide a range of room types, including rooms for students who prefer their own space, and students who'd rather have one or two roommates.

Depending on your preference, we can also offer rooms with a private or shared bathroom and shower facilities.
