Our student residence halls offer a dynamic living and learning environment.
First-year students live in suite/floor arrangements with 10–29 of their peers and a resident advisor -- an upperclass student trained to provide living and learning support. The housing selection process is held every spring.
Most first-year students will receive their room assignment and information about their new roommate in July. Transfer students will be housed on August 1.

Cooking is not allowed in student rooms. However, many of our first-year residence halls have kitchens. You will find facilities in the basement of Post and in the basement of Sherwin, which are utilized by all students living in “5-Name” (Campbell-Elder, Furrow and Sherwin-Neifert). Knox encourages students to take advantage of the kitchen facilities, whether it be cooking for yourself or a group of hungry friends.
