East Housing Area

East Housing Area is the largest residence hall complex on campus, with over 4,000 first-year students living in 14 coed traditional residence halls (soon to be 16 halls! Learn more about our renovation project). The majority of students live in a double room with one roommate, while some students are assigned to a supplemental housing room, which are located every building.
