Thematic Communities

As part of an effort by Residence Life to provide a multitude of housing options that meet the needs of our students from many different walks of life, communities exist across campus that cover a wide variety of interests that our students hold. Students may only be placed into these communities after completing an application for their interested space. These communities include Science Fiction & Fantasy Hall (2nd Floor Noah Hall), Substance Free Hall (3rd Floor Noah Hall), and Quiet Floor (4th Floor Noah Hall). 

These communites are overseen by the professional staff over the Language, Identity, and Thematic Experience (LITE) cluster.
