Hi thanks for the question! First year students can only live in three buildings- Lyons, Ryan, or Joyce. You are sorted into the buildings depending on whether you are honors housing, GREAT housing, or regular housing. I loved living in Lyons in honors/GREAT housing. The quad is also a great place to live because it is a really central location! It's near Alliot, the academic buildings, the library, and the gym. In your sophomore year you can live in the suites, on north campus, in Founders, or in Alumni.
