Residential Hall Lodging

Staying on campus is the best way to be close to all of the commencement activities. Our campus residence hall accommodations, in single or double occupancy, provide casual comfort at affordable rates. Each floor offers a lounge that encourages interaction with other guests while offering you the option of retreating to your own room to prepare for the next day’s activities. Parking is free and close by, and linens and towels are provided. There are a few rooms available for guests with disabilities so please be sure to indicate any special accommodation needs when registering. Rooms will be located in the Southwest Residential Area but at this time the specific dormitories that will be used have not been determined. Learn more about Residential Hall Lodging and make a reservation.
