Housing & Dining for Transfer Students

As a transfer student, you have many affordable options for on-campus housing. Choose from any residence hall with three designed for upper-division students, including University Place, which offers full kitchens in every unit. Or, make your home in a traditional 1, 2 or 3-bedroom apartment located throughout campus.

Housing Options

  • Residence halls – Choose between 13 residence halls, located throughout campus. Two residence halls are specifically for transfer and upper-division students.
  • University Place – Apartment-style rooms, but offers upper-division students more independence with

  • Old Main Marketplace Food Court – Enjoy everything from pizza to made-to-order sandwiches to A&W root beer.
  • Campus coffee shops – Get your caffeine fix with Starbucks coffee.
  • Convenience stores – Grab your snack and go.

With convenient locations across campus, you can meet a friend for coffee, grab a snack at a To-Go café or experience late night dining.

If you live in one of the residence halls, you're required to have a meal plan.
