Guest Housing

Residence Life is very pleased to offer housing to guest of the University. In most cases, assignments will be made to vacant rooms/suites within our residence halls. All suite style rooms are air conditioned, with an attached semi-private bathroom shared with an occupant in the adjoining room. All building exterior doors are locked for security. Check-in arrangements should be made in advance to avoid problems accessing the buildings. In most cases, check-in will be done from the Customer Service Desk of the residence hall to which you are assigned. Every effort will be made to keep individuals from the same program on the same floor of the assigned residence hall. When checking out of your room, keys should be returned to the Customer Service Desk or to the Office of Residence Life.


Assignment to a specific place is never guaranteed, and the University reserves the right to make assignments and change assignments based upon the need of the University. In making assignments to a room and a roommate, the University will make assignments without regard to race, creed, color, or national origin.
