Residence Life oversees approximately 55 university owned residential houses that line the perimeter of campus. These residential houses include several interest-based theme houses and language houses. This living option is available to rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors with priority given to rising juniors and seniors.
Campuses houses are overseen by a Resident Community Coordinator (RCC) that oversees a neighborhood of 4-5 houses. Each RCC serves as a campus resource for residents of the houses, providing emotional support, connection to campus resources, and conflict mediation when necessary. The campus houses are more independent living than traditional residence halls, and it is up to the residents of each house to clean kitchen and bathroom facilities in the houses. Other maintenance and repair issues are all handled by university staff.
Each house varies in size and occupancy, and have kitchen facilities, coin-operated laundry machines and are fully furnished. At a minimum, each house includes the following furnishings: couch, end tables, coffee table, living room lamps; dining table and chairs; and in each bedroom are standard sized twin beds, desks, wardrobes or closets, and dressers for each resident. Each student room is wired for internet access and cable television. Students residing in these houses are not required to purchase an on-campus meal plan, but may do so if they wish.
Descriptions and photographs of the houses are available at the link below. Floor-plans of each house are available in the Student Development Office, located at 3209 N 15th. To sign up to live in a campus house, continuing students may apply for a theme house, homestead their current location, or sign up during annual Housing Selection in the spring.
