Upper Year Housing

The end of your academic year may be four months away, but time always flies faster than you think. January is a great time to think about second year housing

Community housing has its perks, and the life experience that you’ll get from finding a room to rent can be highly valuable for your future. But if you enjoyed living in Residence and like living within a short walking distance of your main campus classes, consider applying to live in David C. Smith House. The rooms are all-inclusive (included internet and cable) and come with access to Leonard and Ban Righ dining halls for 18 meals every week, not to mention a full kitchen.

When April comes around, finding a summer sublet won’t be your main concern – the room comes with an 8-month contract.

Think about your options! Spots in Smith House are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Apply sooner rather than later.
