Housing Communities

Join a Community! Research shows that students who participate in housing communities have higher academic success rate, higher graduation rates, higher levels of satisfaction with their college experience, and an easier time connecting with their peers (Association of American Colleges & Universities, 2010).

We offer a variety of communities for students and want you to find your place to call home! Whether you are looking for richer connections with faculty, specific academic or entrepreneurial opportunities, support for social, academic, or career development, or more ways to get involved on campus, we want to help you find the place where you belong.
