Single Student Residence

Single Student Residence (SSR) is an apartment-style building that houses graduate and professional students as well as undergraduate students who are 20 and older. Each student has an individual bedroom and shares a kitchenette and bathroom within each unit. In addition, each bedroom has a private telephone line. Because this building is mainly for graduate and professional students, the entire building is meant for students to have concentration in their intensive studies.

Fall semester-only contracts are offered only in SSR for students graduating at the end of the Fall semester.
