  • COVID-19 Information

    As we adapt to the realities of COVID-19, changes were made to this Fall semester. Details along with updates related to Residential Life are available on the COVID-19 Updates page. Visit this page for the official, up-to-date details.

Residence halls on the east side are devoted to the first year area, which surrounds Mabee Dining Hall and the Witt Reception Center, home the the Residential Life Office. 

This is an exciting place to get to know the rest of your entering class and to adjust to campus life. The Resident Assistant to student ratio in these halls averages 18:1.
