First-Year Residence Halls

All first-year students are housed in one of the four residence halls (Hemlock, Hickory, Oak, and Laurel). These facilities are designed to maximize student interaction and to promote group activities.

The living accommodations are designed in a two-room suite arrangement; each room has a private vanity and an adjoining bathroom, shared by both rooms. Students are responsible for cleaning their own bathrooms. Each room comes with a microwave/refrigerator unit.

The halls feature:

  • study areas
  • recreation room with a TV, pool table, ping-pong table, and foosball table

Laure and Oak Halls feature commuter rooms for the convenience of first-year students who don't live on campus.
