A great choice if you'd like more privacy and want to be on campus.

Semi-suites are two rooms connected by a shared bathroom, giving you more privacy than a standard residence hall room. You can choose between a single semi-suite (1 resident on each side of the suite) or a double semi-suite (two residents on each side of the suite).

Semi-suites are located in Julia Sears and Preska J/K/L Halls. Due to the popularity of semi-suites, students who want this room type should apply early in the process. Click below for more information on semi-suites.

Meet students quickly and become immersed in the community.

If you're looking for a traditional residence hall experience where you will meet students quickly and become immersed in the community, you might consider living in Crawford or McElroy Residence Communities. Students in these communities share a common area floor lounge and kitchen, as well as community bathroom. View available room types below.
