Housing

The Commencement Accommodations Office provides registration for reserving on-campus housing in student residence halls. Because students are still residing in the halls at this time, a limited quantity of housing is available in the student residence halls for the nights of May 19, 20, and 21 only. Meal tickets will also be available for special events. The cost for a room will be $44 per person per night. Due to the limited supply and the high demand for on-campus housing, we ask you to extend the courtesy to consolidate your guest room needs. This will allow the Commencement Accommodations Office to accommodate as many families as possible. PLEASE CLICK ON: PURCHASE ON-CAMPUS HOUSING to order. THE DEADLINE TO ORDER HOUSING ONLINE IS MAY 10, 2017.
