Residence Life and Housing
Per Semester Cost

Carroll offers 13 residence hall options to suit a variety of needs and budgets. Traditional halls serve as home to the majority of first-year students. Suite-style halls and apartments are recommended for students who have achieved sophomore status or higher. New for 2020–21, Carroll will offer rooms exclusive to university students at the Baymont Inn & Suites by Wyndham Waukesha.

2020-2021 Academic Year

Our goal is to balance the on-campus living experience with the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff. To do so, there will be significant changes to housing this year, informed by American College Health Association (ACHA) guidelines and CDC guidelines.

Carroll will reduce density in its traditional residence halls by offering single occupancy only, housing one student per bedroom, based on the number of students sharing restroom facilities and common spaces. Students in traditional halls will be assigned a single room, however, will be charged the double room rate that would be typical of those accommodations.

We will permit standard occupancy, allowing for roommates, in suites and apartments. For residents with roommates, we ask that each person sign a waiver, recognizing this is their choice of living arrangement. Students in suites and apartments will pay the standard room rates as advertised for their room type. 

To allow for the reduction in the number of spaces available for on-campus living, we will waive the 3-year residency requirement for the 2020-21 school year (only this year), and deposits will be returned to those students who cancel their on-campus housing application by the priority deadline of July 1, 2020 and have an approved off-campus application.
