There are a few different types of campus housing options. First and most prominent are the dorms, which most students experience their freshman year and possibly beyond. There are nine buildings, each with its own unique identity. For example, Todd/Phibbs is often notorious for the party scene, while Schiff is an outdoors-oriented residence hall. Rooms are furnished with a bed, bookshelves, a desk and chair, and a wardrobe. Other amenities include washing machines, vending machines, a lounge, a kitchen, and study areas. Make sure to tour the buildings because some are newer than others and may have larger rooms.
There are also Greek houses and theme houses. The Greek houses are obviously for the Greek community and often members will live there sophomore and/or junior year. Theme houses range from language houses to the track house and emphasize the link between living and learning. Residents are required to put on four events per semester that have some relation to the theme. The benefit of living in student housing is that students don't have to pay utility fees or pay extra rent for the summer months.
