Design Square Apartments Video 

Opened in fall 2009, Design Square Apartments combines the convenience of on-campus housing with the independence of apartment living. Approximately 200 first-year students and upper-level students, graduate students, four resident advisors and one professional reside in the complex during the academic year. Additionally, residents have the option to add a summer lease if desired.

Design Square Apartments is an apartment-style residence with two or four residents per apartment. Each apartment consists of two or four private bedrooms, a living room, dining area, kitchenette and shared bathroom(s).
