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 an open single.
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.
