Special interest housing creates a close-knit residence hall environment

Special interest housing allows students who have similar interests or who are in a similar situation live and learn together. These communities help establish one-on-one relationships between faculty, staff, and students in a close-knit residence hall environment. More residence hall options are available to students who apply to and are accepted by special interest housing communities.
