Berkshire Towers is a suite-style, twin-towered residence area. Each floor of the Towers has three suites. Each suite has three to five bedrooms, a bathroom and a lounge. The majority of rooms in the Towers are doubles, however, a limited number of single and premium single rooms are available. Berkshire Towers is smoke-free and alcohol-prohibited.

Hoosac Hall houses the majority of freshmen and is ideal for students who prefer living in a traditional residence hall setting. There are seven residential floors in Hoosac Hall. Floors house 26 - 38 students in both double, single and premium single rooms. Each floor has three bathrooms and two lounges. Hoosac Hall is smoke-free and alcohol prohibited.

The Townhouses are reserved exclusively for transfers and returning students who prefer apartment-style living.
