At Shawnee State University, you won’t hear us talk about “dorms.”

Because we don’t have any.

All of our housing units are apartments — each with a fully-equipped kitchen, living room, dining area, bathroom, bedrooms and on-site laundry facilities.

Choose between six different apartment complexes, each with their own floor plans — and personalities.

Shawnee living is just better. Here's what sets our apartments apart from other student housing. 

You have space to breathe.

Apartment-style living means you can be social when you want — and have your own space, too.

Everything is convenient.

Your classes, the Bear's Den Dining, and student activities are just a short walk across the street. That may not sound like a big deal, but convenience often makes a difference in class attendance and participation in events that help you make friends (and keep you fed).

Our apartments are safe.

Our Department of Public Safety provides both security and police services. Officers are available and accessible to students around the clock.

Everything is included.

All utilities and internet connection are included in our apartments. High-speed WIFI is available too! No hidden fees or fluctuations in price. When you purchase a meal plan (required for freshmen and sophomores), even your meals are included.

We're young, like you!

Our apartments have been recently remodeled with new flooring and up-to-date appliances.

Take the shower sandals off your list!

Because we don’t have communal showers that you find in dorm settings, you can take shower sandals off your list of college essentials. Just one more benefit of apartment-style living!
