The Office of Residential Life is excited that you have chosen to live on campus! One of the most exciting and memorable aspects of attending college is the opportunity to live with and learn from other students in a residential setting. In addition, research demonstrates that students who reside on-campus are more likely to be successful in their college endeavors, have a higher GPA, engage in campus activities more often, and are more likely to graduate on time.
Students are housed according to classification. New student females live in Williams Hall, located in the center of campus. Williams Hall offers suite-style living arrangements. There are two double-occupancy rooms per suite that share one bathroom (two residents per room, four residents per suite). Williams Hall has laundry machines, study and meetings rooms, lounge area, and a small kitchen on each floor.
For the Fall 2012 semester, new student males will live in Gentilly Gardens, located next to University Police. Gentilly Gardens offers townhouse-style living arrangements. Three residents will share a two bedroom, one bathroom apartment (the resident who applies for housing and remits the required deposit first will be assigned the private bedroom). The apartment has a common living room and kitchen/dining room. Two laundry facilities are available on site.
The newly renovated Straight Hall will open for new student males in Spring 2013. Freshman male residents will be reassigned into Straight Hall prior to Christmas break and move into Straight Hall upon their return in January. Residents will be involved in the reassignment process (meaning you can choose your roommate). Straight Hall is located next to Williams Hall in the center of campus. Straight Hall offers suite-style living arrangements. There are two double-occupancy rooms per suite that share one bathroom (two residents per room, four residents per suite). Straight Hall has laundry machines, study and meetings rooms, and a lounge area.
