Themed Housing Communities


Want to live near other students who share your interests? Apply for Themed Housing. Your imagination is your limit!

Past Themed Housing Communities include Wellness, Big House Christian Living, Environmental Stewardship, Green Living, and Service.

The housing placements depend on your group's needs and membership.  In the past, communities have been located in Madonna Hall, Regina Hall, and the Woodland Residences.

Students selected to live in Themed Housing Communities confirm their acceptance by participating in the Themed Housing Community Room Selection process on April 19, 2016.  During this process individual community members of each selected Themed Housing Community will select a specific housing assignment within their assigned location.  Detailed information regarding time and location for each Themed Housing Community's room selection process will be communicated to community members by April 15, 2016.

Tip: Only students listed on the application will be eligible to live in the community, if the theme is selected.
