Approximately 5,100 students live in sixteen residence halls, a Greek Village, and two apartment areas. Recently, the department has embarked on a 450-million dollar master plan that will add approximately 3000 bed spaces and renovate over 2700 of the current bed spaces. This plan is currently underway and is scheduled to be completed by the fall of 2018.
