  • Theme Housing Resource Page

Theme housing at Eastern brings together students with similar interests to live together within the same area of a residence hall. Theme housing serves as an additional opportunity for students to gain leadership, academic and social skills. Students living in theme housing will participate in meetings, assist in planning programs, work toward common goals, and engage with the larger residential community.  If accepted into a theme, participants must sign an agreement acknowledging that they will fully contribute and participate in what the theme area has to offer.
