Living on campus is one of the best ways to get the full “Lumberjack experience,” from forming lifelong friendships to participating in on-campus social activities and learning opportunities. We think on-campus living is so important that we require students to live on campus until they have earned 60 hours or turn 21 years old.
You are required to live on campus if you are under 21 or have less than 60 earned hours. To apply for permission to live off-campus, visit the off-campus living page.
Applying for housing: A few simple steps

Residence hall application process
After you’ve applied for admission to the university, you can apply for housing. You don’t have to wait until you’re admitted.
