All first-year men traditionally live in Scott Hall.

First-year women and men can live in Tri-Dorms (Evans, Shaler or Wright Halls) or Johnson Hall. Scott Hall and Tri-Dorms have either traditional double rooms or suites. Johnson Hall has traditional double rooms. Suites consist of two bedrooms, separated by a common area.

Upperclass students, including fraternity members and independent students, reside in the Quad which includes Bovay, Brockway, Mapes and Anderson Halls. Scott and Johnson Halls are still another option for upperclass students. The campus apartments feature bedroom units, each with four bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom and Wifi throughout.
