Special interest housing is an opportunity for undergraduate students who share a common interest to live, learn, and grow together. There are signature residential learning experiences based on academics and thematic interests that 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. In addition to any application required for special interest housing, students must also complete a housing application.
