Big Haus is one of three (3) residence halls that serve our freshmen living community, housing approximately 350 first-year residents.  Big Haus has mostly double style rooms with community style bathrooms – shared between 15-20 students; most bathrooms have 2 shower stalls, 2 toilet stalls and 3 sinks.  Renovations are hoping to install 1 hand dryer per bathroom.  Additionally, Big Haus has some singles, occasional designed triples and some suite-style rooms; most of these suites offer residents a private bathroom and/or a common area shared by all occupants of their suite.

Big Haus has begun a multi-year long renovation process.  During the summer of 2016, the entire A-wing was renovated (new bathrooms, bedrooms painted, new furniture, heating, lighting, etc.). During the summer of 2017 the A/B-wing community bathrooms were renovated, and in the summer of 2018 A/B-wing section renovated the heating system and 9 suite bathrooms.  Summer 2019 anticipates the completion of renovations to the A/B-wing.  Future renovations of the B-wing still to come.

Big Haus has several large lounges on the 1st floor of the building.  Additionally, several small offices, group study, and social lounges that are well spread throughout the entire building for use by all residents.

Depending on need, Big Haus will offer a Quiet Floor Housing option, located on the first floor of A-wing.
