All incoming freshmen are guaranteed an on-campus housing experience, and after your freshman 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.
