University Housing

Web Address: www.apsu.edu/housing/

The University believes that life in campus housing provides students with an essential part of the educational experience. Living in a residence hall/apartment affords students opportunities for involvement in learning communities, campus activities, shared responsibilities and community experiences. Since the majority of students’ study and involvement patterns are formed early, the University requires that all full-time single freshmen students under 21 years of age, not residing with their parents or legal guardians, must reside in University housing and participate in a University meal plan while in University housing.

The University has accommodations for approximately 1,500 students. Single students are housed in residence halls, generally two to a room, or Meacham Apartments and Hand Village, four to an apartment, under the supervision of professional and student staff.  Honors housing is available and living-learning communities are located in buildings 300 and 400 of Hand Village and Meacham Building 100.  One, two, and three bedroom apartments are available for married students, single parents with dependent children, or single students age 21 or older with no dependents.

All resident students must provide their own bed linens, towels, and other personal accessories. Students are responsible for the care and cleaning of their rooms. Laundry facilities are available in all residence halls/apartments. Internet, cable, and in-house movie/information channel are provided. All residences are smoke free.

Application for University Housing should be made online at www.apsu.edu/housing. Housing contracts are for the full academic year (fall and spring semesters) and renewed annually. Please refer to Housing Licensing Agreement for fee adjustment policies and deadlines.
