Close to mid-campus lies the Central Residential Area which is made up of nine traditionally-styled buildings. All Central residence halls are coed. However, Van Meter Hall has several female-only floors and male-only floors; Brett and Brooks Halls are barrier-free and fully accessible for disabled students. Brett also offers Break (9-month) Housing (September through May).
Central Residential Area currently features:
Creative Expressions is a multi-year community for students pursuing the arts located in Butterfield Hall
Defined Residential Communities
Spectrum Community for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender students, and allies.
