Second-Year Housing


University life is more than academics, and you probably learned that in your first year! It’s about having new experiences. It’s about discovering new educational and social opportunities. It’s about stepping out on your own as an adult. Living on campus will help you make the most of your University experience, and we hope you will return to on-campus housing for your second-year at Mines!
