Language Houses

Specialty Houses

Specialty Houses provide a learning experience and opportunity to connect in small communities beyond the classroom.  Residents in a specialty house with a full kitchen are not required to enroll in a dining plan but have the option to do so.  Rising sophomores, rising juniors, and rising seniors may apply to various departments during the month of February and are selected before the campus wide Room Draw season.  Rosters for the 2015-2016 academic year will be completed and submitted to Residential Life by March 10, 2015.  The room cost for specialty houses and areas, except the Eco House, is $2905 per semester and $5810 per academic year.  The room cost for the Eco House is $3005 per semester; $6010 per academic year.
