Graduate_Housing

University housing for graduate students consists of spaces located in University houses (906, 914, and 926 Main Street). All rooms are furnished and students will have a single room and share common areas, a bathroom, and a kitchen.

IDCE Students have priority placement in 906 Main Street. At 906 Main Street 14 students live together in an “open house” style – meaning that the entire house is shared by the residents with shared kitchens and bathrooms on each floor. In addition to the 14 private bedrooms, 906 Main Street also features a common living room and a dedicated study area on the third floor. The house  underwent a significant renovation in Summer 2014 and features new porches, exterior and interior paint, flooring, kitchen work, lighting upgrades, and many other improvements.

914 Main Street is our most recently upgraded Graduate Housing which got new kitchens in 2012. 24 students live here in six different four-person apartment units. Each apartment has a nice common living room, a full kitchen and bathroom, and 4 single occupancy rooms. Rooms ending in 04 have a window out to the back porch, not the outdoors – perfect for students who are sensitive to noise from the city outside.

926 Main Street is our largest Graduate House, but features the fewest students per apartment. 33 students live here in 11 different three-person apartment units. Each apartment shares a kitchen, dining area, and bathroom.

930 Main Street is our smallest Graduate House with just 3 apartments for a total of 9 students. Each apartment shares a kitchen, dining area, and bathroom.

157 Woodland is our only graduate house that offers double rooms in apartments. Each apartment shares a kitchen, dining area, and bathroom.
