First-year Housing Options

Campus housing is guaranteed to all incoming first-year students. Most first-year students are assigned to designated first-year areas in traditional residence halls or apartments. All of our residential areas — including the Oakland apartments — support the development of strong communities and provide excellent opportunities for first-year students to develop many friendships. Although first-year students can be assigned to any of the university's residence halls and apartments, the buildings listed on the right are tentatively designated (or have designated floors) exclusively for first-year students for the 2015-2016 academic year.
