Living on campus is exciting, and introduces you to different lifestyles, beliefs, attitudes and values that complement the education you receive here. You’ll learn more about yourself and your classmates by connecting with neighbors and the activities that surround you.

You can request metal lofts (Corbey) or lofting kits (Whitby). Please contact Residence Life before August if you would like beds bunked (one on top of the other) or lofted. If you make no request, beds will remain standard. When you arrive to your room on check-in day, your lofting or bunking setup will already be completed. We no longer allow homemade lofts.

You can lease or purchase additional amenities such as futons, MicroChills (combination microwave and refrigerator), safes and area rugs. Lease or purchase online prior to August 1 at

A Residence Assistant (RA) lives on each floor to help students, and a Residence Hall Director (RHD) is on hand for more difficult questions and concerns, or additional guidance. They also organize activities like game nights, movie nights, socials and other activities. Talk with your RA or RHD if you have any concerns. They are here to help.
