Living on Campus is one of the best and most rewarding experiences of your university career. Students who have completed less than 60 hours of course work or who are younger than 21 years of age must reside and dine on campus and have the opportunity to discover the full university experience.

The Residence Life Department exists as an integral part of the educational program and academic support services of the university.

The university offers several housing options:

On-campus Apartments

1 or 2 bedroom units. Furnished, including stove, refrigerator, and dishwasher. University Woods

On-campus Residence Halls

Single or double accommodations. Information on Residence Halls

Food Service

Students living in on-campus residence halls are required to purchase a meal plan. Various options are available for on-campus eating, including two cafeterias and convenient fast food such as sushi, pizza, Mexican and Chinese food.

If you are over 21 years of age, or if you have more than 60 hours of course work, you may choose to rent an apartment off campus.


The Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services (BCIS - formerly called INS) requires all international students to carry health and accidental insurance.
