Law Student Housing

The Office of Residence Life and Housing became responsible for law student housing effective fall 2018.  We have been very excited about this new venture and growth to our department.  Students living in on-campus law residential areas will now be able to benefit from all University services in a more streamlined fashion.

Housing for law students is only available during the fall and spring academic semesters.
