How Do I Qualify to Live at Baity Hill? 

You must be a full-time graduate student or a graduate or undergraduate student with a family to live at the Baity Hill community.   

Please note: Effective January 2016, Baity Hill no longer accepts applications for postdoctoral fellows. This decision has come with careful deliberation within our department. Our primary reason for discontinuing this program is because our leases always end in May. More often, postdoc fellowships end between December and February and/or their departments lose funding and they are forced to move. In the past, we’ve made exceptions to try to accommodate the postdoc schedule. However, what we’ve found is often times we have to turn away students in the summer and fall because we are full, then an apartment that would have been occupied by a student is now vacant for several months because a post doc has vacated prior to May. By doing this, we have not been able to provide the best service to incoming students.

What Type of Apartments Does Baity Hill Have? Are They Furnished? 

We have 1 bedroom/1 bathroom, 2 bedroom/1 bathroom roommate and 2 bedroom/2 bathroom roommate apartments in all buildings. Apartments are not furnished. We allow you to bring your own personal furniture, just as off-campus apartment communities do. Each apartment does have a dishwasher, a refrigerator and washer and dryer hookups. Each building features laundry facilities for residents without their own washer and dryer. The 1BR/1BA & 2BR/2BA apartments are usually filled quickly so you may have to choose apartment type over building location.


How Much Does Baity Hill Cost? What Are the ContractTerms?
