Cougar Village

Cougar Village has 496 student apartments in 62 buildings and offers style and comfort seldom associated with college housing. It is home to single students, graduate students, and family residents. Traditional freshman are not allowed to reside in Cougar Village unless they are contracted family residents. As of Fall 2000, all apartments were fully renovated, which brought technological updates and a more comfortable atmosphere to the apartments. Cougar Village is just a short walk or shuttle ride from classrooms and main campus buildings.

Single residents are assigned to a two-bedroom or three-bedroom apartment. Applicants may choose a shared bedroom (two people in a bedroom designed for two) or a private bedroom (one person in a bedroom designed for one). Private bedrooms are in very limited supply.

Residents enjoy the same amenities as residence hall students. It's easy to get to know your neighbors, especially with the number of activities offered to support upper class students - both academically and socially. Resident can also choose to live in a Themed Community.
