New Student Housing

In January, you'll move into your on-campus home away from home and begin your college journey!

New first-year students will be assigned roommates in their housing assignment in either Memorial Hall, Smith Hall, or a wing in Coblentz Hall.

New transfer students will be assigned to Coblentz Hall, Meyran Hall, or Shriner Hall with a roommate; unfortunately, single rooms are not available.
