University Housing for graduate students consists of spaces located in University Houses (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.
24 students live in 914 Main Streets in six different four-person apartment units. Each apartment has a 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.
Benefits of Living in Campus Housing
- Facilities Management helps to maintain our on-campus facilities and provides the following to on-campus students: walkway shoveling during the winter months, trash and recycling removal, light cleaning in common areas (bathrooms, kitchens, and common areas), and addressing work requests for any apartment issues at no cost. Facilities Management provides repairs as needed 24/7 (within reason; emergencies are prioritized and general maintenance is deferred to business hours).
- All rooms come fully furnished. Individual bedrooms come with a twin extra-long mattress and frame, a desk and chair, a closet or wardrobe, and a set of drawers. Common areas have a coffee table and couch and kitchens include a table, chairs, refrigerator, and microwaves. Additionally, laundry facilities are available to all on-campus residents.
- Students have direct access to on-campus resources, such as Residential Life & Housing and University Police. If students are having any issues on-campus, they can connect directly with a Community Director or reach out to Residential Life & Housing so we can assist.
- Living on-campus provides ease with applications and the housing process. Students sign individual housing contracts and do not have to worry about filling an apartment or having to find roommates. Residential Life & Housing offers 10-month contracts or semester-only contracts. Summer Housing is available at a separate cost.
