There are many features common to all our residence halls. Each residence hall has its own laundry facility (with free laundry), a full kitchen, and a furnished common area. Given the mountain location, air-conditioning is not necessary, and all rooms have heat and opening windows.

Each room has ethernet connections or wireless connection (allowing you to connect directly into the campus network for high-speed internet access). Cell service varies, with coverage being best with Verizon, T-Mobile, and US Cellular — all have LTE/4G data through most of campus.

Most rooms have two beds with single 37″ x 80″ mattresses. Each room typically has two dressers, two closets or wardrobes, and two desks. All windows are equipped with blinds. All rooms are well-lighted, but a study lamp for your desk might be a good idea.

First Year Housing

First Year students are housed in one of three residence halls.

ANTC and Sutton

Values-Based Living

Wellness is located in the scenic Ballfields courtyard and is in close proximity to the Devries athletic facility.

Suite-Style Living

Villages

The Villages are a great option for students seeking a more independent living option with the convenience of on-campus living. There are two buildings in the Villages (Village A and Village B), with a courtyard between them. These buildings are located on the east side of central campus, near the art buildings and Kittredge Theater. Both buildings are arranged in apartment-style suites with a kitchen, bathroom, and common area. Each suite houses 4-6 students.

Schafers

There are three buildings in the Schafer complex. Schafers A, B, and C are located around a central lawn with covered porches connecting them.
