Location: North, Residences

Historical Note:

By the late 1990s the University was moving towards apartment-style dorms for both graduate and undergraduate students. The idea was for students to enjoy the independence of being in an apartment setting with all the convenience of being on campus, creating a "modern collegiate residence environment".

Located on St. Rita's Lane, South Lake Village consists of nine 2-story and seven 3-story buildings. It's 228 apartments of various sizeswhich include one-, two-, and four-bedroom apartments as well as studios.
