Residential Life

Themed Housing

Themed housing can help you explore your interests outside of the classroom while connecting students who share your interest. Our themed housing options are listed below:

Wellness living - Queen Anne House

Wellness Living is a community designed to serve students who are interested in and committed to living well physically, emotionally, socially, intellectually, and spiritually.  This includes making positive life choices and abstaining from substance use in the residence hall. This housing option offers a wide variety of specialty programs and opportunities.

 

Science House - Kent Hall

All science and math related majors are welcome! Research has shown that STEM residence halls increases student persistence and success in their field, especially for women.

How does simply housing STEM students together help?
Environment matters, visibility matters.

  • Studying together
  • Seeing others daily persisting in classes
  • Supporting each other now and as they progress in their studies and fields
  • Making friendships that will forge professional connections in the future


What kind of classes are we talking about?

Bio 112 and Chem 112 are perfect examples of classes where first year students greatly benefit from living in the same hall.

How do I request to live there?
On your Housing Preference Form, it is question # 19. As staff assign students,those who request will be placed there. If spaces are still available, staff will assignpeople who have expressed interest in a STEM major.
