Residence Life is committed to providing a safe, comfortable, and secure living–learning environment that is conducive to students’ academic pursuits and personal growth while fostering a sense of community, civic responsibility, and appreciation of diversity. All University Park degree seeking first-year students are required to live in the University residence halls unless you are (1) 21 years old or older, (2) a veteran, or (3) living with an adult relative in their primary residence. Adult learners can choose to live in any residence hall; however, White Course apartments have a majority adult population. Full-time live-in professionals, Residence Life Coordinators, are available 24/7 to provide support and respond to crisis situations. Those students selecting to live off campus will find information in the Off-Campus Living section.

Off-Campus Living

234 HUB-Robeson Center

The Off-Campus Living website provides a listing of local rental properties as well as a list of students seeking roommates/suitemates. Additionally, Off-Campus Living sponsors educational workshops for students living in the residence halls who are considering moving off-campus, as well as fall and spring housing fairs, that invites exhibitors from local rental properties and the town and gown communities. Those students selecting to live on campus will find information from the Residence Life section.

Is there housing specifically for adults?

White Course Apartments provides a unique environment for full-time graduates – singles, couples, and families. A supportive staff and an excellent safety/security program help to make graduate life easier and more comfortable. Special activities and programs help residents get to know one another – and form friendships that will last a lifetime.

One-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments and townhouses make up family housing at White Course Apartments. Singles apartments feature 75 four-bedroom units with common areas for 300 residents.

Is housing available on campus for four years?

On-campus housing is not guaranteed after the first year. Students interested in living on campus must participate in the eLiving Housing Contract process by submitting a request for a Housing Contract during the established timeline. Randomly chosen students will receive an offer for a regular or supplemental Housing Contract. Sometimes, the demand for on-campus housing exceeds the amount of space available. In that case, not every student who submits a request will receive an offer; they will automatically be added to the Waitlist. For additional information about the process, visit Some students choose to live off-campus beginning their second year.
