When you live in the residence halls you’re part of the campus—close to the library, labs and classrooms. You can grab a bite in the Cyber Cafe or fill up at the dining room in Mazzuchelli Hall—then work it off in the Fitness Center. Best of all, your friends—old friends and the ones you haven't made yet—are right around the corner.
