About Murray & VanSteeland:

Murray and VanSteeland Living Centers fully furnished apartments and primarily for returning residents, transfer students, and graduate students. First year residents are eligible to reside in Murray and VanSteeland if they request to be in the Gender Justice House or International House. Murray and VanSteeland apartments provide residents with increased privacy and space, while still being close and convenient to classes and campus resources. They are located on south campus near The Blue Connection, Library, Niemeyer Honors College, and the Kirkhof Center. Residents can enjoy the privacy of their own bedroom and additional living space, all while still enjoying the community that has been built. Outside, there is a volleyball and basketball court, and a large courtyard where you will typically see students lounging or playing outdoor games.
