Housing Selection for Fall 2020

Following physical distancing recommendations, the fall 2020 housing plan is structured so that every student lives in a bedroom without a roommate. Although we will have fewer bedroom spaces available, our staff will work endlessly to fill every space until the start of the academic year.
