There are six buildings primarily designated for first-year students, with a few wonderful themed-living communities. All first-year residence halls are coed to varying degrees: by floor, wing or alternating room. Students can indicate their preference on the housing questionnaire.

Library services

The Ethel K. Smith Library contains more than 95,000 print volumes and provides access to an array of resources.
