New Student Housing

You'll soon move into your on-campus home away from home and begin your college journey!

New students will be assigned roommates in their housing assignment and communicated on July 24. New first-year students will be assigned to either Memorial, Smith, or Meyran Hall. New transfer students will live in the new residence hall, if available, or in either Meyran, Coblentz, or Shriner Hall.
