Meal Plan Selection Process

Incoming upper class transfer students living in the Campus Apartments must select one of the four meal plan options.

Incoming First-Year Housing Information

  • First-years are housed together in Canavan Hall suites. Suites are comprised of one double and one triple rooms adjoined by a bathroom, for a total of 5 students per suite. 
  • Within Canavan Hall, males and females are divided by room on every floor.
  • Students must complete an application and create a roommate group, or find roommates using eRezLife's Roomiez portal! If you are not able to fill your space, the Housing and Residence Life Office will do its best to pair you with compatible roommates based on your housing application.
