First year and continuing students live in Wabash Building.
The Wabash Building offers single and shared bedrooms within suite style spaces. Each suite is designed such that the residents of that suite share a common area, bathroom and shower. Suites are made up of different combinations of room types. For example, a suite could be made up of two shared bedrooms or four single bedrooms. To learn more about our room types, visit our Room Types page on the Housing Portal.

All residents living in a suite-style room are required to have a meal plan both at the Wabash Building and at the University Center. Student living in an apartment at the University Center are not required to have a meal plan but can choose to have one.
Students wanting to upgrade their meal plan, can contact the Office of Residence Life. We will explain the larger meal plan options and then make the requested change. Upgrades must be made prior to the beginning of the academic year or within the first three weeks of the Fall semester. Meal plan upgrades are applied for the full academic year.
Students living in an apartment at University Center can choose to add a meal plan. They can select from all meal plan options, including a specially designed apartment meal plan (150 meals for the year).
Students seeking exemption from the required meal plan must submit medical documentation that clearly demonstrates that their food needs cannot be met through the dining center. The dining center will review the documentation and make a determination.
