Living on Campus
  • Finding Your Place

    You won’t be around Capital too long before you start hearing about the Cap Family. That’s the network of friends, professors, staff and community members that offers support and friendship to our students during their time here. Whether you're hanging out in the residence halls, snacking at the Crusader Club or working out at The Capital Center, you'll soon find your place in the Cap Family, too.

    Choosing Your Home

    Capital's residence halls are the hubs of activity on campus. You'll sleep there, make new friends there, study with your classmates, do your laundry, hone your gaming skills, relax and more.

    Before you move in you need to make some choices, like which kind of hall do you want to live in? We offer traditional housing, suite-style living, or apartments (although apartments are usually limited to upperclassmen). They all come with broadband Internet, voicemail service and cable TV connections.

    Learn more about your housing options and all six of our residence halls. If you have more questions about living on campus, our Residence Life and Housing Office is ready to help.
