Welcome to The Numbered Houses

    A Note from Current Residents: 

    New House is a home, and the people within it become a second family. From cooking to Nerf wars and dance-offs, everyone in New House comes together to make something that is one of a kind. New House isn’t a building; New House is the people that live and thrive inside it.


    • Many students form cooking groups with friends or simply with people that have similar eating schedules.

    • Some choose to cook independently.

    • Some also choose to have a meal plan. While New House does not have a dining hall, Next House, which does have a dining hall, is only 100 feet away.
