Special Interest Housing
Learn about same-sex housing, substance-free housing and the Quiet Hall.
Some students request to live on an all-female or all-male hallway. We accommodate these requests by designating same-sex floors in coed residence halls.
This housing request comes from students who are committed to a substance free lifestyle. We have designated several halls as substance free. Residents in substance free housing agree that they and their guests will not consume alcohol or be under the influence of alcohol or other substances while in the residence hall. In addition, they agree to abide by the University's non-smoking policy, the University's prohibition against illegal drug use, and the University's policy which requires only medically prescribed use of prescription drugs. The substance-free community includes programs which promote a substance-free environment. Residents are included in program planning in order to ensure that the substance free housing mission is fulfilled. Ability to remain in substance free housing is predicated upon student observance of the substance free housing contract.
Quiet Housing is a friendly place which seeks to maintain an environment conducive to sleep and study 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The purpose of the community is to live in a space with minimal disruption or noise. This hall is by no means an anti-social environment; it is simply one in which its residents are more considerate to and respectful of the desires of their hallmates to stick to their own sleep, work, and study schedules.
Quiet housing has two simple rules:
- Excessive noise is not permitted. Those who wish to listen to music or watch televisions do so with their doors closed and at low volumes.
- Residents are responsible for the conduct of their guests. Guests are expected to maintain the same standards of quiet as residents.
