Apartment living is a great opportunity to learn how to live independently before graduating. In our apartments, you share space with a specific group of people that you select in a way that makes community living feel like a shared home. You learn how to cook with each other, set expectations around chore sharing, and can gain insight and share success with neighbors in the same apartment building. Students residing in apartment communities are exempt from the meal plan requirement.
Groups of students interested in living together in an apartment can apply during the Spring Room Selection Process and will be offered priority to choose their assignment based on the number of students in the group and average lottery number.
A quick summary of Apartment Communities is included below.
