Residence Life

What's the Latest?


• We'll be renovating three houses in Colonial Square this summer: Jamestown, Newport and Plymouth houses. These buildings are getting new laundry rooms, lounge areas, and kitchens, and all rooms are getting new furniture!
• We've already started renovations in Constitution and Enterprise halls, which are getting new bathrooms, ending a three-year project of upgrading all bathrooms in the high-rises. This work began during the January session and will be completed over the summer months.
• The courtyard entrance in Nassau and Suffolk will soon have card swipe access so that residents can enjoy use of the outdoor space, now outfitted with Adirondack chairs to relax and soak in the sun!
• Next fall, first year students residing in Stuyvesant Hall will enjoy a newly painted building along with brand new furniture in their rooms.

New First Year Building

We have made changes to the building utilized for incoming first year students in Colonial Square: beginning fall 2018, first year students can choose to reside in Williamsburg house. Continuing undergrads can now opt to reside in super single suites in Plymouth house (formerly grad and law school housing)!

New Specialized Living Communities

We are thrilled to announce three new housing options for residents. The first is gender inclusive housing available on a first come first serve basis in both Constitution and Nassau halls. Find out more.

Incoming first year students will have the option to participate in two new exciting living learning communities; International Exploration and First-Generation. Find out more.

Policy Changes(Effective Fall 2018)

  • Housing rates have been consolidated from an eleven-rate structure to six to make it easier for students to understand the cost associated with residing on campus.
  • The housing refund schedule has been updated to be in line with the University's tuition refund schedule which runs the first four weeks of the semester.
  • The Residence Life fee has been changed to $120 per semester to improve the laundry service being offered to residential students based on student feedback.
  • The housing cancellation fee has changed to $1500 and will be charged if a student decides to forfeit their housing contract prior to the end of the academic year.
