Communities for first-year, transfer, and upperlevel undergraduate students
Want to learn more about art, theatre, or music? Act on your concern for the preservation of our planet? Reaffirm or explore an ethnic or cultural identity?
Program Houses – or themed residence halls – offer the chance to develop and immerse yourself in interests within an engaging community of residents and out-of-house members. These close-knit communities have a high level of involvement, with regular events, programming, and outreach opportunities, often in collaboration with related academic departments.
To apply to live in a Program House for the 2019-2020 academic year, complete the Program House application beginning October 1, 2018. This year, the Program Houses are offering an early decision deadline of November 20, and will be informing applicants by the end of the fall semester whether they were selected or will move to the regular decision process. The deadline for applying for the regular process is February 1, 2019.
Located on north campus, Program Houses are open to first-year, transfer, and upperlevel students. EXCEPTION: Language House is a part of the West Campus House System on west campus, and is only open to upperlevel students.
Program House residents pay a nominal activities fee of $40-$100/year to help support the many programs that define and distinguish each house. Visit each each of the Program House's web pages (visit Housing Rates for activities fees).
Our housing options vary in physical location and environmental design. Please note that not every building has elevator access, air conditioning, wheelchair accessible rooms, and/or private bathrooms. Please see individual housing pages for more information, or contact the Housing Office at email@example.com or 607-255-5368.
