Choosing Your Building

First-year undergraduates can choose to live in either Centennial Halls (simply called Halls), Johnson-McFarlane Hall (also known as J-Mac), or the Dimond Family Residential Village (known as DFRV).

The buildings look different on the outside, but inside, the differences are minor. The average rooms in Halls are slightly larger, while rooms in JMAC have bigger windows and the DFRV is our newest residence hall. J-Mac is closer to most science and music classes, and Halls and the DFRV are closer to the Ritchie Center and the arts and humanities classes held in Sturm Hall. Both sides of campus have convenience stores and dining options available.

Once you've chosen which building you'd like to live in, submit your housing application.

Some of the Benefits to Living on Campus

  • Convenience- All the halls are right on campus, with short walks to classrooms, the athletic center, and light rail.
  • Safety precautions- You need a keycard to get into the residential parts of our buildings, and the halls have front desks.
  • Room for fun- Our halls have big lounges for watching TV or playing pool, and lots of small, comfortable lounges for studying or hanging out.
  • Learning opportunities- Living and learning communities, theme floors, classrooms, and educational events planned by our staff in the residence halls make learning a part of day-to-day life.
