How To Use The Student Housing Website

The Student Housing website is organized into several section. Each section is included in the primary (horizontal) menu, which is available, and identical, on every Student Housing web page. A section-specific menu is located in the left column of most pages, based upon the contents of the section. For example, the menu at the left of this page is the "About Student Housing" menu: it lists the pages that are organized under the "About" category. Other "About" web pages are Student Housing's Mission Statement and a History of Student Housing page.

Many sections are designed to inform prospective students about their housing options, while others support current residents, and others still are written with staff and faculty and the general community in mind. However, every section will inform prospective residents and others who are new to Student Housing about Student Housing's various housing types and programs, so consider reviewing the various sections while deciding whether or not to live on campus.
