University Terrace, located on the corner of 52nd street and Westfield Boulevard, just across the street from the Davey Athletic Complex (baseball filed).  It is an apartment-style residence hall which houses nearly 100 students.  UT usually houses a mix of sophomore and junior students. 

Each apartment is a shared space with one or three other people.  Each apartment is furnished with bedroom furniture for each resident, but the main living space is unfurnished.  Each apartment has a kitchen which includes major appliances (microwaves are permitted, but not provided).  The building has a lobby/desk area which is staffed for several hours each day.  In the lower level residents will find a computer lab/community room and a laundry room.  Residents can also enjoy the outdoor courtyard in the center of the building.  

There are three different types of apartments with the major difference being the number of people living in the apartment and the number of bedrooms. University Terrace offers:

  • Two person efficiency apartments (no separate bedroom) - very limited
  • Two person, 1 bedroom apartments (one shared bedroom)
  • Four person, 2 bedroom apartments (two shared bedrooms)
  • Four person, 3 bedroom apartments (one shared bedroom, two single bedrooms) - very limited

Students assigned to apartments are not be required to participate in the University's meal plan since they have full kitchens in their apartments. However, they may choose to purchase a meal plan to supplement their own cooking.

UT residents are invited to participate in building-wide programs as well as programs for the entire apartment community (includes the Apartment Village).  

There is a full-time Residence Life Coordinator (RLC) who is responsible for the entire apartment community, including UT, who lives in the building.  There is also an Apartment Community Assistant (ACA) who lives in UT and works directly with the residents.  The entire staff of ACAs provide programming, support and on call duty coverage for UT as part of the larger apartment community.
