South Community

A small community of freshman and returning students in the center of the campus located across from the Student Activity Center. These residence halls include suite-style rooms with private bathrooms.

The South Community is closed during Thanksgiving, semester and spring break periods. Students knowing they will need housing over breaks should explore a housing assignment in the East Community.
