Traditional Residence Halls

In traditional residence halls, all rooms are double occupancy and you share a community bathroom with other students on your floor. You will be provided a bed, dresser, desk, and closet.

Halls are coed by wing and include laundry facilities, study rooms, common kitchens, and television lounges. They offer sports equipment, games, a microwave, and DVD player for use.

Traditional residence halls are available to select as a preference in the MyHousing area of the myShip portal. Due to overall housing occupancy and availability, traditional housing may not be available or guaranteed. It's not uncommon that your roommate and others living on your hall become the closest friends for life.

The Housing Office uses RoomSync through Facebook so you can meet your future roommate. Once both of you make your housing deposit, you both can go to your Housing Portal via myShip, mutally match each other, and select your preference for traditional housing.

Students apply by completing the Housing Agreement and paying the $200 deposit.  Go to: MyShip, Student, Ship Life.  The agreement is on the right side of the page.  Note: Entering first-year and transfer students having earned fewer than 30 (between 1- 29) undergraduate college level credits are required to reside in university housing. Exceptions to this policy include those students who reside full-time within the home of their parents or legal guardians within 50 miles of campus, those who are 21 years of age or older, and/or those who are legally married.

You and your future roommate use the MyHousing Portal via MyShip to request a room in the traditional hall in the living preference tab.

Rooms start at $2,353 per student per semester in traditional residence halls. For more information, please see the pages for individual halls.
