Convenient Living 
Students recognize us for convenience, beyond just proximity to classes. We have made renting easier by creating one-bill to include room rent, utilities (electricity, water, heat, A/C, garbage and recycling), Wi-Fi, community and study spaces, academic support, exclusive social events, plus free streaming TV service.

Meaningful Connections 
Research has shown that students who live on campus have stronger connections with faculty, better relationships with their peers, and participate in more student activities.

Graduation Goals 
Students who live on campus have higher graduation rates and graduate faster than those who live off campus.

Safe Environment
All of our residence halls and apartment buildings are locked 24 hours a day.  Only residents and appropriate staff members may access our buildings.  The University Police Department and Department of Housing and Residential Education staff are on call 24 hours a day.

Peace of Mind 
Safety and security is more than locks and cops with us. In addition to only worrying about one bill, there are no hidden fees or change of contract rates once you move in. If someone moves out of your room or apartment, you will never be obligated to pay their bill; and if you are having issues in your room, our staff can help mediate or find a new room. Additionally, we understand that there are things in life you cannot control, so we will work with you and the University to address unexpected financial hardships while living here.

Healthy Eating 
Coyote Commons provides a large variety of healthy food choices that taste great, as well as comfort food and cuisine from around the world. First-year students are required to choose a meal plan, and upper-class students can also opt-in. Visit our “Meal Plans & Dining Options” page to learn more.
