University On-Campus Housing Policy

The University requires students to live in university housing their first two years out of high school. Students who fall under the University On-Campus Housing Policy will not be able to register for classes until University Housing Services receives their residence hall contract and initial payment. These regulations are applicable to all students insofar as space is available in University residence halls.

Atkin/Colby and Hamilton/Whitten Mementoes Available for Purchase

Mounted door knobs, mailbox doors, and room numbers from Atkin/Colby and Hamilton/Whitten residence halls are available for purchase and benefit the University Housing Services Student Employee Scholarship fund. Learn more.
