About Student Housing

 Spartan Residential Housing

Housing and Residence Life is responsible for the overall management of a comprehensive student housing program. Through intentional experiences and services, we offer students a safe, inclusive and well-maintained learning centered residential environment that promotes a sense of belonging, self-authorship, student empowerment, intellectual curiosity, and transformational development.

Furnishing for Residents

All residence hall rooms are equipped with a bed, desk, dresser, chair, and wardrobe for each resident assigned. Spartan Suites and Midrise (double suites) have common living furnishings.

Meal Plans

All students residing on campus are required to have a meal plan. Selection for your meal plan is done on the housing application or on the Intent to Return form.

Students residing in traditional halls have 3 meal plans to choose from, residents of Spartan Suites have four. The number of meals listed for the meal plan is the number of meals students have to eat in the dining facilities each week. Meals replenish every Sunday. The "dining dollars" are additional funds students can use in other on-campus eateries during and outside of meal plan hours. While the meals replenish every week, dining dollars are for the semester.

Room & Meal Plan Rates

The Housing Rates Page provides the current rates for housing and meal plans for residents.

Students with Special Needs

In accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, if you have a disability or think you have a disability, we ask that you contact the Office of Accessibility Services & International Students (O.A.S.I.S). Based on the provisions of your documentation from a physician, the Office of Disability Services will make a determination as to whether your documentation warrants specific on-campus accommodations. This needs to be done no later than 8-10 weeks prior to the start of the semester and in no ways guarantees the requested accommodations. Accommodations will only be considered once O.A.S.I.S provides the request directly to Housing & Residence Life.
