Students live in apartments from their first day on campus, which means you don't have to wait until you're an upperclassman to enjoy freedom from stuffy dorm rooms.
All registered, full-time students are eligible to live in the residence facilities. Single-sex housing is enforced and access for people with disabilities is provided. Capitol guarantees housing for continuing students who meet the April 15 deadline.
The six residential halls, which are named after scientists, are located at the entrance to the campus. Each of the 15 apartments houses six to eight students.

four bedrooms (two singles and two doubles)
a large shared bathroom and living room/common area
