UHart should feel like home. That’s why we offer flexible living arrangements to match your individual lifestyle.
You will have access to various room types, study lounges, and free laundry facilities. We also allow you to choose your own roommate, and first-year students have the option of being a part of a Residential Learning Community.
For your convenience, dining halls, wellness facilities, and academic buildings are just a short walking distance away. Each living area has multiple Resident Assistants (RAs) and a full-time Resident Director (RD), who can help you when you have questions or concerns.
First-year students have the option to live in a Residential Learning Community (RLC). Our four RLCs provide students with a shared residential and academic experience where they connect with like-minded peers.
Participants engage with faculty program staff and other students in weekly meetings, at Commons, or by attending RLC-specific activities that revolve around your passions. Students form study groups, play ping pong, and have late-night conversations with their classmates—who also happen to be their neighbors—in floor lounges.
Join us for a living and learning experience you won't forget.
