Students work together in a community
Discover Your Community

Living on campus is about community. As you register for housing, consider whether you want to join a community, which will help you customize your live-on experience. Living in a specific community will help you discover connections with other students, faculty members, and the campus.

Students living in these communities will select roommates from the same community, creating strong bonds with peers who share your interest or identity. It doesn’t cost extra to get more out of your experience, so look around and find a good fit.

Note: All ARC and RC applications are closed for the 2023–24 academic year.

Academic Residential Communities

Live and learn with students who share your passions, interests, and identities. Students living in ARCs take classes together and connect with professors and advisors who support you socially and academically. In many cases your building will have special areas like design studios, music practice rooms, and maker spaces to help you succeed.

Residential Communities

Find a community outside the classroom. If you want to connect with other students who have similar interests, identities, values, or needs, you might just find what you’re looking for in a Residential Community.
