Frequently Asked Questions

Graduate housing is available for all full time graduate students. No dependent or family housing is available.

Graduate students are able to live in Taft Commons, which is located approximately three miles from campus. A free Campus Shuttle service is provided during the Fall & Spring semesters only. (See link for schedule and availability details). The complex offers space for graduate students to live in shared single gender apartments. *NEW for 2017-2018* Each apartment will offer three single occupancy bedrooms. The Double room rate will no longer be offered and occupants will no longer share a bedroom with a direct roommate. A three month commitment is required along with a signed housing contract.

Applying for Housing

Graduate student housing will be assigned on a first come, first served basis. Space is very limited as vacancies are only created once a current Graduate student moves out at the end of his/her program. We will not accept requests to leave a room vacant.

Application for Graduate Housing is currently closed.  All vacant Spring 2018 spaces have been filled. See below for information on how to be on a Waitlist for any last minute openings.  Thank you!
