Living at Shepherd
Residence halls are more than just a place to sleep, study, or store your things. It is a community full of opportunities for you to make friends, learn new things, and expand your horizons. When choosing a residence hall please take the type of hall you are looking to live in as well as theme housing options into consideration. For a better understanding of each hall, please click on any of the residence hall links.
