Student Living

Couzens Hall

HSSP is housed in Couzens Hall, a mixed-gender residence hall located in the Hill Neighborhood near Central Campus Recreation Building, Marketplace and Victors at the Hill Dining Center, Palmer Commons, Palmer Field and the Nichols Arboretum. Many other University buildings and schools are also convenient to Couzens.

This heritage hall reopened in the fall of 2011 after extensive renovations and major upgrades to the infrastructure, including a new fire suppression system, temperature control for heating and air conditioning in all student rooms, new bathrooms, and study/relaxation lounges on floors three through six. During the academic year, members of the Couzens Hall community participate in a wide variety of hall activities, programs and events.

Randomly Assigned Roommates

HSSP does not honor roommate requests. If two first-years wish to live with each other, they should request each other as roommates in case they do not get into the program. If a student is admitted to HSSP, they would be living with another HSSP student. HSSP roommate pairs are randomly assigned, so the probability that two students would end up together is extremely low. This is an intentional decision made by HSSP in order to build the most inclusive space possible. As a result, HSSP has an incredibly tight-knit community!
