Theme Houses at Puget Sound are designed to create intentionally engaging living environments for sophomore, junior, and senior 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. Our goal is that the selected theme houses will make unique contributions to 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 are expected to be involved and active in the campus community. A faculty or staff member typically advises each of the theme house members to support and connect with students with similar interests. To continue as a theme house at least 50% of the residents must be upper-division students, (i.e. juniors and seniors). 

Standing Theme Houses and their advisors include, but are not limited to:

Jeff Halstead, Athletics

Maria Sampen, Music

Mike Orechia, Athletics

Mikiko S. Ludden, Asian Studies

Ti Nguyen, Honors Program

If you are interested in living in one of these theme houses, contact the staff or faculty advisor listed or contact Residence Life by December 1 to be connected with the faculty/staff advisor or theme house coordinator of each house.
