Traditional-style Living Center

Traditional-style Living Centers

Traditional-style living centers provide the traditional, or "true" college experience. They foster a sense of community and residents are fast to form friendships. It’s common to see room doors propped open, hear music playing, residents chatting across the hall, and hanging out or studying in the lounges. Although traditional-style buildings have community bathrooms, we offer private shower rooms that have a toilet, shower, and sink. These buildings are located on North campus near Kleiner Commons, the tutoring center, Fresh Food Co., Fuel, and Mackinac Hall, where most freshmen have classes.
