On-Campus Living for Freshmen

Thayer Hall is a 10-story, traditional residence hall that accommodates 188 freshmen on the third through eighth floors. Five of the floors are co-ed and one floor is female only. Double or triple rooms are available.

Each floor has two community bathrooms, one for women and one for men, and a laundry room. Having a community bathroom means you share the facility and have to keep it neat, but our housekeeping staff will clean it.

A wireless study lounge is also located on the second floor.
