We have two buildings dedicated to suite-style housing on campus. In a suite, you will share an adjoined bathroom with the roommates who live in your suite, rather than sharing with the entire floor.

Suite-style housing offers more independence and privacy than traditional halls but requires more effort in getting to know students outside your suite, and tends to be more popular among upperclassmen. As a suite resident, you will typically share a bedroom with one other student, and share a bathroom with another double-occupancy room. There are also a few larger suites that have three- and five-person bedrooms.

Gender-specific suites are mixed on all floors. Also, each floor has a kitchenette and study lounge.

Horan & Lee Halls

Horan Hall and Lee Hall are sister buildings that offer virtually identical floor plans and amenities. Horan is home to approximately 700 students on 11 floors, while Lee Hall is home to approximately 550 students on 10 floors. Both halls are open to all undergraduate students.

Horan and Lee Hall are home to our first-year living and learning community, the Arches, as well as five of our six Common Interest Communities. All of these residence communities are different but they each provide an opportunity to forge new friendships and participate in special programs and excursions.
