Auburn’s 27 residence halls are home to approximately 4,800 students. All residential neighborhoods are a short walk to classroom buildings, dining venues, downtown Auburn, and the Student Center. A section or all of some residence halls are designated for special interest housing communities including students involved with Living Learning Communities (LLCs), the Honors College, and Panhellenic sororities.
Living on campus is not required of or guaranteed to first year students; however, a majority of students live in Auburn’s residence halls their first year. Each residence hall has a team of Resident Assistants (RAs) that live and work in the halls. RAs are responsible for planning social and educational events, assisting residents as they adjust to living on campus, supporting students’ academic success, and providing on-call assistance to residents in the evenings and on weekends.
All residence hall rooms and suites are furnished and feature air conditioning, high speed wireless internet service, cable television, and window blinds. Residential common areas include kitchens, laundry rooms, meeting rooms, study lounges, and social lounges.
