Upperclassman Residence Halls

The University of New Haven isn’t just where you go to class.

It’s also where you learn to live on your own, make lifelong friends, participate in campus recreation, organize activities, or just “hang out!” And the best part? You have a choice. The University of New Haven offers students on-campus residence halls and off-campus options ranging from a traditional residence hall to townhouses to apartment-style suites and themed housing.
