The residence halls all have their own personality and proud residents. Each building has a Resident Director (RD) to help guide students. Each floor also has one or two Resident Assistants (RA) who help plan floor events and conduct administrative responsibilities in the residence halls.After your first year you will have a choice of where to live. There are three types of rooms at Bryan: 1) Suite style rooms which consist of two rooms connected by a common bathroom; 2) Community style rooms with a vanity area in the room and large bathrooms on each floor; 3) Town home rooms that include a living room, full kitchen and private bath for each room. Each room type houses two students. Want more? Check out a list of common residence questions.
Some students say the food is better than home cooking. Really, there are a lot of options to choose from—hot entrees, salads, pizza, sandwiches, stir-fry, etc.! Bryan's dining hall is located in the student center and runs on a "continuous service" model. Monday through Friday the dining hall is open 7am - 7pm. This makes it a great place to hang out to play a card game, or grab some coffee while studying. Often the dining hall has specials such as smoothies or hot pretzels. (See hot meal hours)

The Student Handbook
The Student Standards at Bryan are designed to create an atmosphere of personal responsibility and healthy habits. The Student Handbook is available online. Most students want to know about things like curfew (12:30am Sunday through Thursday and 2:00am Friday and Saturday), and when they can visit the residence halls of the other gender (Female halls are open Friday evenings and male halls are open Saturday). If you have any questions, ask your admissions counselor when you come for a visit.
