Apply for Special Interest Housing

Each year, Residential Life and Housing supports a variety of Special Interest Housing options for students. We would love for you to consider applying to be a part of this special community of students!

What is a Special Interest Housing group, you ask? It is an opportunity for you and a group of friends to live together and help create a community that stems from a particular topic or passion that you may have. You would have the opportunity to create programs and events that embrace the interest that you and your group select. Some examples of Special Interest groups in the past have focused on music, food, New York City, diversity, and art, to name a few.

Why be involved in Special Interest Housing? This is a unique opportunity to live with your friends, learn how to plan and implement programs, focus on a topic that you have interest in, and positively impact the community that you live in!

If you and a group of friends are interested in living together next year and would like to help create programs & events around a topic, you may apply to be a Special Interest Housing group for the 2011-2012 academic year.

Applications and more information are available at

An information session will be held on Friday, February 18th at 3pm in the Weber Lounge. Please come and learn more about this exciting opportunity!!

Applications must be submitted by 4pm on Tuesday, February 22.

Students may apply in groups of 4-6. Three groups be selected for the 2011-2012 academic year. Groups that are selected will be assigned to housing and do not have to go through Room Selection. Groups who wish to return the following year must reapply for consideration.
