It’s a big step to come to college and move into your own place. Moving onto campus makes that transition a lot easier. Here you’ll find friends waiting, a hot meal and a host of services and amenities to make life less hectic.
Our residential community is composed of seven residence halls housing over 1,200 students and single-parent families. Located in the heart of the BSU campus, they are a short walk to academic buildings and connected to other campus buildings by a system of underground walkways and tunnels.
Not One Size Fits All
There are a variety of room options, so you can select which option works best for you. There are double rooms, single rooms, suite-style rooms and a limited number of singles with private baths. Check them out.
Services and Amenities
Living on campus is about so much more than a bed to sleep in. You’ll have access to a living room, game room, TV lounge, kitchen, Internet, academic resources, a computer lab and plenty more services.
A huge part of living on campus is the food. Dining services has many options like the buffet-style cafeteria located in Walnut Hall affectionately known as Wally’s, the Lakeside Food Court in the Hobson Memorial Union and the convenience stores. Read more about dining options and meal plans.
Cedar Apartments features two and three-bedroom units available for single-parent students. There is lots for kids to do here, including a playroom downstairs and playground equipment in the backyard.
What’s your preferred living style? Each residence hall has room or floor options that fit diverse student lifestyles. All room options are limited in number, and waiting lists are maintained for options that may not be immediately available.
Types of Rooms
Single Room Without a Bath
Single rooms are approximately half the size of a double room. This is a good choice for those who desire a little more privacy and love cozy spaces. Single rooms without a bath are located in Birch and Pine. This option is for after the first year.
Two and Three-Person Linden Suites
Linden Suites have two or three-person options with private bedrooms and a shared bathroom. These suites are perfect for students looking for both privacy and the close bonds that only rooming together can bring. This option is for after the first year.
ADA Compliant Rooms
For students with disabilities, a limited number of ADA-compliant rooms are located in Linden. Contact the Disability Services office for assistance.
