Residence Halls

Mesa Court is a first-year housing community with twenty-nine classic halls and three towers. Each residential community has a common space for studying and socializing, a small kitchen, and laundry facilities. 

Please note: For fall quarter (2020), all residence hall rooms will be occupied by a single student. Room rates will be set at the double-occupancy level for each building type, i.e., classic double or tower double room rate. Occupancy limits will be reassessed at the end of fall quarter, and students will be given advance notice of any changes planned for winter or spring quarters. More details here.
