Theme Houses at Puget Sound are designed to create intentionally engaging living environments for upper division students. Students have the opportunity to live together with peers with common interests such as academic majors, athletics, foreign language, outdoor exploration, healthy living, and other activities. The Theme House program allows students to choose their housemates and live in a more independent setting while remaining active and engaged members of the community. Our goal is that the selected theme houses will each make unique contributions to the campus living through their presence on campus.
Each Theme House has a student coordinator who will serve as a liaison to Residence Life. House members will be expected to be involved and active in the campus community. A faculty or staff member, along with a Residence Life staff member, advises the house members in their efforts to support and connect with students.
Residence Life is only able to support and sponsor a limited number of houses, so the application process can be competitive. If you are interested in living in a theme house, please apply early. Please note current theme houses will need to reapply to secure their house for the following year. Priority placement is given to current theme houses in good standing. The Early Decision Theme House selection process for 2014-15 will take place in January. Applications are available now! Theme house applications are due January 24, 2014.
