Residence Halls

We have many residence halls that offer a variety of living options, including traditional and suite-style halls as well as apartment style housing. All rooms include basic cable, utilities, and Wi-Fi at no additional cost. (In the Goethals Apartments, cable, utilities, and internet are not included and have to be purchased separately.)

Incoming freshmen are assigned to a traditional or suite-style freshman residence hall to enhance the first-year experience. The Freshman Center works closely with these halls to bring unique opportunities to freshman residents. Upperclass residents have the opportunity to select from one of our suite-style residence halls. These halls, through programming and other initiatives, these halls provide environments that promote continued growth and independence.
