Residential Life

Shared-Interest Communities

Optional themed housing areas and activities make it easier to:

  • Make connections and new friendships with classmates who share common interests, goals, and tastes.
  • Get involved with activities on campus.
  • Take full advantage of all that college living offers.

How it works

These rooms and shared lounges are in designated sections or floors of residence halls on campus. A typical shared-interest community totals about 20 residents who enjoy activities together.
