Themed Communities

Customize your Residence experience with a Themed Community.

An Themed Community is a Residence community in which students share a common interest. You can expect to participate in activities and programs that are specifically planned for the community. Themed Communities are a great place to live and an easy place to make friends since you already have a common interest.

Please note that each Themed Community has a set location and room type. Selecting an Themed Community on your application will place you in that particular community's location, regardless of your location and room type preferences. If you would like to request roommates, the roommates also need to select the same Themed Community on their applications for the request to be accommodated.

Apply before June 1 to be guaranteed placement in your chosen Themed Community. Not all options may be available each year as they are subject to interest.
