Most townhouses are two-story, with a living room, full kitchen, and dining area on the first floor and two double bedrooms and bathroom on the second floor. Some houses are "flats," meaning that all rooms are on one floor, more like apartment-style living: Homer Dodge 1, 2, 7, and 8; Maggie Dodge 1, 2, 7, and 8; Morsell 1 and 2; South Crescent 1, 2, 11, 12, 13, and 14, and North Crescent 1 and 2. North and South Crescent flats also contain working fireplaces.

Townhouses are available for junior and senior residents only. Because residents have a full kitchen in their house, meal plans are available but not required. Students are fully responsible for cleaning their townhouses.

The Townhouses follow our Open Housing policy with regard to gender.
