Transfer & Graduate Student Housing

Transfer Students

  • If you will enter Nazareth as a first-year student, you have the option of selecting a First-Year Shared-Interest Community.
  • Transfer students who enter as sophomores or upperclassmen have multiple housing options.

See Residence Halls for descriptions of buildings and amenities.

Nazareth's limited number of single rooms go mostly to returning students in the Spring Housing Lottery. Transfer students are assigned to available vacant rooms in the upperclassmen dormitories. Once you receive a space, you can request a change to a different room or building depending on availability. See Room Change Procedures for more information.

Graduate Students

Graduate housing is given to students who have previously lived on our campus before, ex: students who have completed their undergrad at Nazareth and are now working on a masters, or students who are fifth year students (finishing undergrad and completing their masters). On-campus housing for these graduate students is extremely limited and is not guaranteed.

On-campus housing includes free laundry facilities, all utilities, cable, internet, and local phone service.

Graduate students interested in on-campus housing should contact the Office of Residential Life: 585-389-2480 or
