Lower Division

Lower Division

Common Room

As freshmen, sophomores, or transfer students, you are required to live on-campus for four semesters or until you are the age of 21. Living in community encourages development in all of our residence halls. All halls have kitchens, common area spaces, and free laundry on-site.  Lower division residents are required to have a meal plan, regardless of the style building you live in.  


The University recognizes circumstances where living and dining on-campus is not prudent (student living with immediate family, married, financial hardship, medical condition).  Students subject to the residency requirement may request an exemption from on-campus living or the meal plan.
