Housing

All students are housed in a residence hall on campus. Each student shares a room and bathroom with one or two other students on a private, locked dormitory floor. Dorm rooms include a bed, desk, and dresser for each student. Each student is also provided a personal laptop to use for the duration of the program.

Dining

Meals are eaten at the resident dining hall, which is buffet-style dining. Snacks will also be provided to students during class time breaks each day. Anyone is welcome to bring their own favorite nonperishable snacks from home. The university dining facility is experienced at accommodating student's special dietary needs. We work closely with the university dining staff to create a food allergy action plan to determine what accommodations can be made for specific student needs.
