More Information:

West Eggleston Hall has the following amenities:

First-year students:
All incoming first-year students are required to live in on-campus housing for their first year; however, students are not guaranteed their choice of housing, and must complete their housing/dining contract to be assigned a space. Assignments for incoming first-year students and transfers are made in contract receipt order, so the earlier your contract arrives, the earlier you are assigned in the process.

For more detailed information about first-year housing, please visit this page.

Returning students:
Unlike incoming freshmen, on-campus housing is not guaranteed to returning or transfer students. Returning undergraduate students must request housing for the next academic year using the housing application process (HAP), more commonly known as the "housing lottery."

For more detailed information about returning undergraduate housing, please visit this page.
