While Big Haus mainly serves our freshmen living community, the renovated A-wing is used to house upperclass and transfer students.  Big Haus has mostly double style rooms with community style bathrooms shared between 15–20 students. Most bathrooms have two shower stalls, two toilet stalls, and three sinks.

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 undergone a multiyear renovation process. The entire A-wing has been renovated including new bathrooms and furniture, and upgraded heating and lighting. The A/B-wing community and nine suite bathrooms were renovated as well as the heating system.

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