Housing Contract

Residency Requirement and Application Deadline

As a freshman and sophomore, you are required to live on campus unless you have been granted special exception. If you submit the Application/Contract by the priority deadline, you will have the best choices of University housing. If you miss the priority deadline, we will do everything we can to find you the best space available in as timely a manner as possible.

The Freshman Community

All freshmen, as well as a very select group of upperclass resident advisors and other upperclass support students, live in the freshman residence halls. Approximately 1,300 freshmen and upperclass students live in the Susan B. Anthony Halls and in Gilbert, Hoeing, Tiernan, and Lovejoy Halls in the Quad. Susan B. Anthony, on the crest of the hill, is bounded by the Rush Rhees Library, Fauver Stadium, the Jackson Court Residence complex, and a natural area. The Quad is bounded by the Goergen Athletic Center on the north, Wilson Commons and the academic quad on the east, the fraternity quad on the south, and the Genesee River corridor to the west.
