Rooms that fit your style, taste — and preferred noise level.

A place to learn and grow

As a first-year student you’ll live in a traditional residence hall . Most new students live in doubles unless you’re lucky and land a single in the ’64 Halls, Aldrich, or 819 Clary Street.

Who will you live with? We match roommates based on interests, sleep and study habits, social style, and whether you’re a neat freak or a bit messier. Your RA will help you settle in and offer support for any Res Life concerns.

Theme houses, townhouses, and more

As you get a feel for campus, you’ll quickly find your people and figure out where you want to live for the rest of your time at Beloit.

Some res halls are single-gender; others are gender-inclusive or coed by room or floor.

If hustle and bustle isn’t your thing, the Res Life staff can guide you to a room on a quiet or alcohol-free floor, while The Office of Learning Enrichment and Disability Services (LEADS) helps students find accessible housing.

As early as your second semester, you’ll have a chance to choose from:

  • A traditional residence hall with doubles, triples, or singles. (Most first-years and sophomores live in these types of dorms.)
  • One of 17 special-interest houses . (Options include houses for the arts, foreign languages, substance-free living, spirituality, environmentalism, sci-fi and gaming, LGBTISS, and other student groups. Bonus: Most themed houses are in renovated Victorian homes, if you’re into high ceilings and quirky architectural details.)
  • Greek houses on College Street for fraternity and sorority members. (A few houses have their own dining halls, so you won’t have to venture to the Commons on chilly days.)
  • Upper-level student housing in dorms, apartments, or townhouses for juniors and seniors.

About 96% of students live on campus. Off-campus housing is an option, but not until your senior year.
