» Housing for First Year Students

At Chapman University, on-campus housing is guaranteed and required for incoming first-year students. This means that students will automatically have a space in the residence halls or Chapman-owned apartments for your first and second years.

First Year Students will live in one of these buildings: Pralle-Sodaro Hall, Henley Hall, Glass Hall, Morlan Hall, and the Sandhu Residence Center. These buildings are designed to enhance the student experience at Chapman by allowing students to engage with one another, meet new friends, and build community in our safe and comfortable residence halls.
