Rooms that fit your style, taste — and preferred noise level.
A place to learn and grow
As a first-year student you’ll live in a traditional residence hall . Most new students live in doubles unless you’re lucky and land a single in the ’64 Halls, Aldrich, or 819 Clary Street.
Who will you live with? We match roommates based on interests, sleep and study habits, social style, and whether you’re a neat freak or a bit messier. Your RA will help you settle in and offer support for any Res Life concerns.
Theme houses, townhouses, and more
As you get a feel for campus, you’ll quickly find your people and figure out where you want to live for the rest of your time at Beloit.
Some res halls are single-gender; others are gender-inclusive or coed by room or floor.
If hustle and bustle isn’t your thing, the Res Life staff can guide you to a room on a quiet or alcohol-free floor, while The Office of Learning Enrichment and Disability Services (LEADS) helps students find accessible housing.
As early as your second semester, you’ll have a chance to choose from:
- A traditional residence hall with doubles, triples, or singles. (Most first-years and sophomores live in these types of dorms.)
- One of 17 special-interest houses . (Options include houses for the arts, foreign languages, substance-free living, spirituality, environmentalism, sci-fi and gaming, LGBTISS, and other student groups. Bonus: Most themed houses are in renovated Victorian homes, if you’re into high ceilings and quirky architectural details.)
- Greek houses on College Street for fraternity and sorority members. (A few houses have their own dining halls, so you won’t have to venture to the Commons on chilly days.)
- Upper-level student housing in dorms, apartments, or townhouses for juniors and seniors.
About 96% of students live on campus. Off-campus housing is an option, but not until your senior year.
