Getting you started on the right foot.
That's what we do.


What will you do while living on campus? Eat fresh food at every meal, save time walking to class, and find your flock in the heart of the action—but that’s not all. You’ll form better relationships with faculty, get more involved in campus life, earn better grades, and increase your likelihood to graduate on time. Whatever you do here, you won’t do it alone.


Your residence hall is your home away from home, and we want you to have all the same comforts (and more) as you had before you moved on campus. Enjoy:

/   Wifi with Support Staff
/   Cable TV
/   24/7 Computer Labs
/   Kitchenettes
/   Laundry On-site (at no extra cost!)

/   Learning Communities
/   Maintenance Staff
/   Shuttle Access
/   Dining Access

There's no place like home, and nothing makes a place feel more like home than your favorite furry, or scaly, friend. We understand a loving pet can ease your transition and overall college experience. That’s why we developed our pet friendly community. Find out how your best friend can live on campus with you


Find Your Flock

Living on-campus provides the benefit of not just proximity to campus activities, but also the chance to become part of a community. Campus activities like picnics, ice cream socials, movie nights, and so much more are a short walk or shuttle ride away. You're bound to make friends (probably for life) and develop a network while living in Southeast campus housing.

Learning Communities

Our Residential Learning Communities were created for students who share similar interests or study in the same academic program to live together, sometimes on the same floor, but always in the same building. This can give you a jump start in connecting with others as soon as you move in.
