Residential Living Frequently Asked Questions

    Pets are not permitted in the residence halls other than fish in a 10-gallon tank or smaller.

    Yes! Each residence hall has a full kitchen, complete with a toaster, microwave, stove/oven, and refrigerator/freezer.
  • Is alcohol allowed on campus?
    No form of alcohol is allowed on campus, regardless of your age. We enforce this policy for the safety of the campus community.
