The best residential experience is not just about where you live, but how you connect. It’s the difference between a house and a home, or a street versus a neighborhood. It’s all about the relationships within the community and how you choose to get involved. That's why our living environments change as you progress in your studies, from traditional halls to more independent living in our suites and apartments. Through programs and services designed for each of these areas, you are encouraged to become an active part of our community. So connect, settle in, and enjoy this very special time in your life living on our beautiful campus.
Your first on-campus living experience will be in one of the University’s traditional residence halls. There are three halls that make up “The Quad”: Berkshire, Franklin, Hampden. Freshman may also live in Windham Hall or in Commonwealth Hall, a larger hall shared with Sophomore students.
Life Can Be Suite
Sophomores can choose to live in Commonwealth Hall or in the LaRiviere Center: a state-of-the-art living and learning facility, where you live in a suite with up to five other students of your choosing!
Welcome to the Neighborhood
Gateway Village Apartments, the Evergreen Village Townhouses, and the Southwood Hall Apartments feature full kitchens, living rooms, bedrooms, and baths to offer upper-class students an ideal environment to prepare for life after graduation.
Convenience and Community
Whether you are an international graduate student or studying law, apartment living at Gateway Village gives you both convenience to campus amenities and connection to our community of scholars.
