Housing and Dining

find your retreat: campus housing & dining.

Housing

Get the most out of your college experience by living on campus. Our residence halls and apartments provide an opportunity for students to live an integrated academic and social life. This means you will be able to get to class, meet your study group, grab a bite or sweat it out at one of the fitness centers on campus easily.

Dining

Campus food has come a long way since the days of plastic trays and cafeteria lines. The main dining halls—Becker and Brandeis—offer you many options at meal times and in between.

Before those 8 a.m. classes, you can swing by Starbucks in the Skutt Student Center. Or stay for a while and study at the cozy Java Jay Cafe & Bakery, located in McGloin Hall, with specialty coffee drinks, yummy baked goods and a selection of sandwiches and salads.

The Harper Dining Center offers tons of options for lunch and dinner, including healthy ones from the Mindful Program.

Of course, there are even more dining options available on campus and a variety of meal plans.
