Campus Houses & Apartments

  • The Basics

    Union has a limited number of houses, duplexes and apartments which are available to faculty/staff and eligible students. These are conveniently located around the perimeter of the university campus. In most cases, tenants are responsible for paying their own gas, electricity, and water service. A security deposit equal to one-month's rent per unit is required in advance once a student has been accepted for rental housing. Rent for university-owned housing is charged each month to the student's account and will be considered, just as is dormitory room rent, when making your financial plan with the college.

    NOTE:  Residence halls are managed by Residential Life and supervised by Student Life.

  • Eligibility

    All Union students must be approved to live "off campus" by the Office of Student Life. In this case, "off campus" means any dwelling other than a residence hall. However, Union campus housing is considered to be "on campus" due to its ownership and location. Housing that is not a residence hall or campus housing is also called "village".

    For further information go to To apply to live in non-residence hall housing, complete the "Housing" section in your online registration checklist.
