HOUSING INFO FOR NEW STUDENTS
Admitted for Fall 2014
Admitted students who have paid their tuition deposit will receive housing selection information from the Admissions Office. Students are encouraged to promptly return their housing agreements and housing deposit. Rooms and suites are filled as space is available. Housing for new students begins as early as February. We work to make the best possible assignment, but granting all requests is not always possible. Once assignments are made, students are able to view them by logging into their SCOTS account and checking the MyHousing section. Students are encouraged to check their university email often for updated information and opportunities.
It is an exciting time to be coming to Edinboro University! Excellence surrounds our students inside classrooms as they engage in learning and research led by highly accomplished faculty members, and surrounded outside of the classroom by staff and peers who are genuinely interested in student success. The Residence Life and Housing staff eagerly awaits your arrival and wants to assist in any way possible to alleviate any undue concerns and to answer your questions as you transition to our community.
Resident students enjoy the highest quality in their residence hall accommodations and affordability within a community that offers great convenience. The student housing fee along with the meal plan, allows students to plan and manage their expenses. Included in the housing fee are all utilities, including cable television, wireless and wired network access within the rooms and common areas of the suites. Each residence hall also has common spaces for community gatherings, recreational equipment, a kitchen and laundry facility for student use. The campus shuttle bus also stops near all of the residence halls.
Students who live on campus are not only closer to campus events and activities, but also take advantage of programs and spontaneous interactions that occur among others within the community. Whether taking a walk on our 585 acre campus, or heading down to Edinboro Lake, there is always someone who's ready to go along. We have over 100 student clubs and organizations!
In addition to the hall amenities, there are many opportunities for students to become involved in campus and to explore the surrounding area. Edinboro University offers a wide array of campus-based activities and events that include: Fighting Scots Athletics, Homecoming, Family Weekend, Random Acts of Kindness - Edinboro (RAKE), Concerts, Performances, Plays, Movies, Harvest Festival, Recreational Sports, Open Recreation time at the Z Dome and at the Pool, the Red Carpet Gala, SnowFest, Greek Week, and the Big Event. University Programming Board, Student Government and Residence Hall Association provide great leadership opportunities, even for new students. Get Involved!
HOUSING OPTIONS OVERVIEW
THE HIGHLANDS at EDINBORO
The Highlands at Edinboro University are our newest residences conveniently located in communities that provide our students with access to classroom and campus recreational and dining facilities. Students may elect to live in suites that offer single or double bedrooms with a common area; semi-suites that offer increased privacy without extra common space; or single or double studios that offer privacy within a community that offers interaction among community members. (Click here for more about The Highlands)
Edinboro offers a limited number traditional residence hall rooms which provide a classic residential experience
for our students. This environment provides our students with opportunity to interact with peers, plan activities and participate in all aspects of community living. Students generally share a room with another student. Bathroom facilities are common to the floor or living unit, but offer privacy for the residents. Common lounge areas and kitchens are offered in each building. (Click here for more about traditional halls)
LIVING LEARNING COMMUNITIES
Living-Learning Communities provide our resident students with an opportunity to become involved in activities with faculty and other students who share common interests. Students who participate in these communities are better connected to campus resources and tend to remain in school at greater rates than those who don't participate.
