Housing at Shepherd
Check Out the Residence Halls
|Shepherd’s newest residence hall, opened in Fall 2018, is available for first-year & upperclass residents! Potomac Place is a suite-style living where no more than 2 people will share a bathroom with double and single occupancy options available.|
|Traditional Halls are in the center of campus. If you like to be in a central location of campus where you are near the Wellness Center and not too far away from classes, then this is the place for you. Many of our art and music majors may choose to stay in these halls due to convenience.|
|First Year Honors students may be given special permission to live in Martin Hall, which is a suite-style building, as space permits. To learn more about this opportunity, please call our office at 304-876-5172.|
