Where Will I Live?
All full-time traditional day students are required to live in campus housing. Coed and single-sex housing is available.
There are six traditional residence halls, Albright Court, Mohn, North, Krause, Crowell, Smith, and Walton Halls. Mohn Hall is also the academic honors residence hall and is available to students of all class years.
There are two residential areas that are apartment/suite style – Albright Woods apartments and Rockland Hall. The apartments are for sophomores, juniors, and seniors, and Rockland Hall is for juniors and seniors.
Crowell, Krause, Smith and Walton Halls are a special living community for first-year students that provide an atmosphere to help students meet personal and academic needs. First-year students are assumed to be under the age of 21 and are not allowed alcohol in any of these residence halls.
Selected upper-class students, resident assistants (RAs), live in Crowell, Krause, Smith and Walton Halls and serve as mentors offering information and support. Hall programs and discussions contribute to a dynamic living experience.
Spaces in Crowell, Krause, Smith and Walton Halls are limited and are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
The first-year experience in these residence halls is intended to assist students with their transitions to college, campus living, roommate concerns, homesickness, and other first-year student adjustments.
Students who are invited into the honors program and/or are scholar award recipients have a unique living option in Mohn Hall, a residence designated for all honors students. Resident Assistants (RAs), located on each floor, act as resources and sponsor some programming geared toward academic excellence. RAs will also look for ways to integrate academics and cultures by engaging residents in mentor initiatives and other programming efforts. Mohn Hall offers computer rooms and study lounges on the upper three floors. Upper-class honors students receive preference in this residence hall, but limited spaces are held for new students interested in this option.
North Hall houses upper-class students, mainly sophomores and juniors, who must select this group living option during the housing selection process in the spring. Each pod houses 12-15 residents and has a restroom area (3 showers, 3 toilets, 3 sinks) with washer/dryer unit. RAs are housed on the second floor of each pod.
Albright Woods Apartments
The Albright Woods apartments house upper-class students who must select this group living option during the housing selection process in the spring. Each apartment consists of a bathroom, living room area, storage closet, and a full kitchen complete with a refrigerator, oven, and dishwasher. Each apartment is also fully furnished with standard campus furniture. All apartments either have a balcony or porch. Albright Woods is the only residence on campus where students may bring a microwave, toaster, and grills without propane tanks. RAs are housed in 5 of the 39 apartments.
Rockland Hall is a brand new and completely modern housing complex reserved for juniors and seniors, with a waitlist option for sophomores. The residential area is made up of 52 state-of-the-art suites. Each suite is gender inclusive, and consists of a spacious common room area, a full kitchen complete with a large refrigerator, microwave, oven with stove top, and cabinet space. Four, five, and six bed suites have two full bathrooms, and three bed suites have one full bathroom. Individual bedrooms consist of one bed, two beds, or 3 beds.

Additionally, residents will have secured access to the building with required ID swipe at both the main entrance and elevators, with separate security features for individual suites and bedrooms. Students gain an additional 11th month of housing, with an option of a 12th month for $750. The 11th month does not raise initial semester housing cost.
