As the school year comes to an end, this is the time for students to begin looking for housing, whether to come back to Snow or at another university.

Snow College Residence Life is currently taking applications for students who are interested in living on campus. The on campus residence halls include Suites at Academy Square, Snow Hall, Castilleja Hall, Mary Neilson Hall, Nuttall Hall, and Anderson Hall.

Suites at Academy Square is one of the newest housing buildings for Snow College. Only a few years old, the Suites has four floors, eight wings, two full kitchens, life size chess, a pool table, and much more. They also have the highest security of any other housing complex.

“When I lived in the Suites last year, I felt like my things were very protected,” said Marshall Tovar. “Having to slide my card all the time was a little obnoxious sometimes, but not one person broke into my apartment.”

Nuttall Hall and Snow Hall are the Living Learning Communities (LLCs), meaning that they are buildings for people of certain majors or interests. Snow Hall is the LLC for Fine Arts majors, and Nuttall Hall is the LLC for athletes.

“When I was a music major, living in Snow Hall was extremely beneficial,” said Clarrissa Page. “I had a really hard time with music theory, but there were people in the building who understood it better and could help me with my homework.”

“Living on campus, there is so much resident on resident interaction, and we have a lot of community events to bring people together,” said resident assistant Shawnara Troup. “I see people supporting each other and being there for each other every single day. You become very close to everyone around you, and it’s like your building is your family.”

One of the major benefits of living on campus, along with the friendships you gain, is the proximity to campus. “I live across the street from the buildings I have classes in,” said Page.

To apply for on campus housing, go to and click on Apply. “I love living on campus,” said John Thompson. “I met my very best friend at Snow on campus, and it’s something I would recommend to everyone.”
