Basic Hall Information
We have eight residence halls across campus. If you're interested in learning more about Panther Villiage or Hillside-Jennings, please go to the Apartment/Suites page.
The seven co-ed residence halls are Bender, Campbell, Dancer, Hagemann, Noehren, Rider and Shull. Lawther is our all-female hall. The co-ed halls have all-male and all-female houses, as well as co-ed houses in Noehren and Rider. The Residence Comparison Chart shows the different options in the halls and the individual hall pages show you more information specific to each hall.
Houses: Each of our eight residence halls has between 4 and 13 communities which we call "houses." About 50 students live in each house, which can be an entire floor of a hall or portion of a floor. All have common bathrooms and hallways and most also have lounges. New students are placed into these based on availability, but there is the option to live in a Living Learning Community.
Staff: Resident assistants, residence life coordinators, secretaries, desk assistants and custodians are here to help you feel right at home.
- Resident Assistants (RAs) are full-time students who are carefully selected and trained to be knowledgeable about university services and opportunities. There is typically one per house and they are there to help build a community where you can grow and succeed. Your RA will help you adjust to college life, keep you informed, get you involved, and most importantly, lend an ear when you need advice or assistance.
- Residence Life Coordinators (RLCs) are full-time professional staff member who lives and works right in your residence hall. Each coordinator supervises RAs and desk staff, advises student groups and oversees management of the building.
Assignments: If the Department of Residence receives your completed contract and pre-payment by May 1, you will be notified of your room and roommate assignment in June. The letter you receive in June details move-in information, your residence hall, your room number, and your roommate's information.
Traditional Rooms: These rooms are two-person (double) dormitory rooms.
Single Rooms*: Single rooms are available in all residence halls. Physical single rooms are available in Bender, Campbell, Dancer and Lawther Halls. Single rooms are smaller than a double room and cost $915 more than a double room.
Super Single Rooms: A "super single" is a double room contracted to one person and are now available in all 8 residence halls. The current academic year cost for a super single room is $1305 more than a double room.
*Returning residents have priority for assignment in all single rooms. New residents must follow the guidelines for Disability and Special Health Needs to request consideration for a single room.
