There are limited spots to live in the on-campus residence halls. If you want to live in the residence halls, it is strongly encouraged that you apply early; however, applying does not guarantee a spot. If not approved to live in the on-campus residence halls, you will need to find your own accommodations off campus. Most residence halls have a shared kitchen for you to cook meals.
