Residential First-Year Experience
Gorman Hall is a part of the Residential First-Year Experience (RFYE). RFYE halls are designed as living-learning communities where first-year students can engage with their peers around common interests and pursuits. First-year halls offer intentional staffing and support to assist students in their transition to the University.

Break Housing (9-month)
Gorman will be the First-Year Break Housing Option. As a Break Housing Hall, Gorman has a large population of international students and Resident Assistants. Gorman is also adjacent to the International Programs Office (IPO). Students who specifically requested Break Housing accommodations will automatically be charged the Break Housing Rate. Students who did not specifically request Break Housing will be expected to vacate during Thanksgiving, Wintersession, and Spring Break periods. Gorman residents who wish to remain over break periods can contact Residential Life Student Services to make a request. Students who are approved will be billed the additional $300 per semester break housing fee. For more information about Break Housing Costs please visit Housing Costs.
