Housing and Food

We bring life to the
University community.




No matter where you are in your educational journey, we have just the right living environment to help you succeed. All incoming first-year students are guaranteed an on-campus housing experience, and after your first year, there’s no need to leave campus. We have multiple housing options, ranging from suites to apartments, for our upperclass students to choose from.

Don’t forget about adding one of our meal plans to get the most out of your campus experience. With over 20 on-campus restaurants, including the world’s only all-you-can-eat Chick-fil-A in Couch Restaurants, you’re never far from your next snack or latte.
