Special Interest Housing

Special Interest Housing (themed housing) gives you the option to personalize your living experience to help you get the most out of life in the residence halls.

Students selected to participate will have the opportunity to live and work together around a common purpose or theme. Living together allows you to live, study, and learn together to achieve the goals you set out to achieve for you and your friends.

In the past, special interest themes have centered around the study of foreign languages, wellness initiatives, environmental concerns, international experiences, community service, and social justice.

What Are The Advantages of Special Interest Housing?

  • It allows students to personalize their residential experience and tailor it to their own unique needs.
  • It extends learning outside the classroom and enhances the residential experience and the overall campus climate.
  • It's an exciting way to increase faculty and staff involvement in the residence halls.
