Department of Residence (DOR)

Welcome to your Cyclone Home! The university provides housing for almost 11,000 students in university owned on-campus residence halls and apartments. Single (non-family) student housing is available in all residence halls and the Frederiksen Court and University Village apartment communities. Family housing is available to students and their partners, children, and other relatives in the Schilletter Village apartments. While newly-admitted freshmen 18 and under are assigned to the halls, all halls and apartments have a diverse mix of freshmen, sophomores, juniors, seniors, and graduate students making on-campus housing a great place to live and learn.
