Housing and Residence Life

Find Your Home at Southeastern.

Home to approximately 700 students, our Residence Halls are more than just a place to sleep and store your things. They are communities that provide an exciting living and learning environment. Our four residential facilities, including one apartment-style complex, meet the needs of everyone. From hall government to intramural sports and study sessions, there are many ways to get involved. Living on campus will help you to make lifelong friends and discover a variety of opportunities.

Not sure how to select a roommate/roommate group?  Instructions below!   


The first step is to have a conversation to make sure that you know that you all want the same thing; the same hall, the same room type, the same community, etc.

RESIDENTIAL COMMUNITY LOCATIONS: check the locations of the community you would like to live in:


  • Option 1: Both/All Roommates/Suitemates select a room/suite location at the same time, perhaps while having a group chat to ensure that you sign up for the same suite. This way you can all look at the locations that are available and make selections based on the availability of the room/suite that represents your highest priorities.
  • Option 2: “The Roommate Group”

Step 1: Put yourself in a “Roommate Group”.  The person who starts the group is the “Group Leader”.  This is the person who will assign everyone else to the group and to the room/suite.  The Group Leader will need to add the other members to the group, and the other members need to accept the invitation to join the group. (Note, you cannot be invited to join a Roommate Group if you have not submitted your Housing Application.  You cannot be invited or accepted into a Group if you are in another Group or have already selected your Room.) ONLY ONE PERSON SHOULD CREATE A GROUP!!  Decide who you want the one person to be before you start this process!  (We recommend that the person who qualifies for the first available Room Selection Time and who the Group most trusts to complete the process properly be selected to be the Group Leader.)

Step 2: Once the other members accept the invitation to join the Group, the Group Leader must participate in the Room Selection Process and find a suite that meets the highest priorities and has the required number of bed spaces available to assign all Group Members. The Group Leader will have the priority to add/assign Group Members to the suite until June 15th.  After June 15th, Housing & Residence Life reserves the right to either assign additional members to the suite (without input from the rest of the Group) or to reassign a Group Leader who has not assigned other members.  This will prevent one or two people from holding an entire suite for the entire Room Selection process.)

Step 3: Group Members must select a Meal Plan after they have been assigned to a room.
