Residence Halls and Apartments

Traditional Residence Halls

Our traditional residence halls offer single, double, and triple rooms with shared community spaces like kitchens, lounges, and bathrooms. First-year students live in St. Mary, Stanton, and Crandall, unless you sign up for one of our theme housing communities in upper-class housing. As an upper classperson, you have a wider range of housing options. Our suites and apartments include private living spaces, along with shared community spaces like computer labs and social lounges.

Each of our housing options provides you with countless opportunities to connect with your fellow Katies and grow within the campus community.
