Special-interest houses are student-directed residential communities centered on academic and/or co-curricular interests. Students explore self-governance, engage in civic responsibility, share knowledge, and sponsor programs in support of a self-selected theme. Houses seek approval on a yearly basis to allow the program offerings to reflect the ever-changing interests of the students. Please see the Room Selection website for information about how to join an existing special-interest house. Or read the instructions to learn how to propose a new group.
