Frequently Asked Questions


Below are the most commonly asked questions regarding housing. As always, feel free to contact the Office of Residence Life if you have any additional questions or concerns at or (304) 457-6213.

What are the layouts for AB’s residence halls?
You can learn more about each residence hall on their individual webpages. They are listed on the column on the left of this webpage.

What are the housing rates for the residence halls?
Please review our Housing Rates webpage for information regarding costs.  

Will certain residence halls be restricted to certain classes?
Traditionally, Priestley Hall and Benedum Hall have been restricted to freshmen students. This may change for the 2014-2015 academic year. More information will be shared if that will be the case.

Are any of the residence halls considered to be “off-campus”?
No, all rooms in all halls will be considered “on-campus” and subject to the same fees and policies, including the requirement of a meal plan.

Will there be single rooms available on campus?
Blue Hall and Gold Hall are both designed to offer single rooms in an apartment setting. These two buildings are the only guaranteed single rooms on campus. Single rooms are only made available in other halls as space allows. Students interested in obtaining a single room in a building other than Blue Hall or Gold Hall will be placed on a waiting list. The Office of Residence Life anticipates that very few single rooms will be available in other halls for the 2015-2016 academic year, so students should anticipate having a roommate.

When will incoming freshmen be notified of their housing assignments?
The Office of Residence Life will begin notifying incoming freshmen of their housing assignments beginning mid-June. Notifications will occur weekly as students are housed until classes begin in August. The deadline for new students to submit their Housing Request is August 1, 2015. Students who do not submit their requests by then will be housed randomly.
