Prairie Place

The layout of Prairie Place is nearly identical to Bur Oak Suites. Like Bur Oak, Prairie Place is a suite-style residence hall containing nearly 50 suites and houses up to 180 students. There are community rooms, laundry facilities, exterior deck and patio (with a great view of nature), and common lounge areas. You could be living here if you get going and apply early!

Several rooms are designed for those students who have physical disabilities. The building is also equipped with an elevator. Access to the building is limited at night as the building is equipped with a security system that automatically secures itself at night, allowing access only to those living in that building.

Room and Board Costs

Cost is per student/per semester. Starting Fall 2021, students receive 14 meals per week at the Overlook Cafe Monday - Friday. Must present your student ID.
