The Shire Mods are a sophomore residence community that offer apartment-style living arranged around courtyards that provide students with medium-sized, outdoor common areas as well as large grassy areas outside the courts for student gatherings and activities. The community also includes a central laundry facility and a large recreation room that features a lounge area, ping pong tables, and a community kitchen. The Shire’s layout is excellent for community-building, and its location on campus allows easy access to university resources and services. Electricity, water, and gas costs are included in the rates listed below.
Floor Plan A offers traditional two-bedroom apartment housing intended for four students. These units have one bathroom and a kitchen with a full-size refrigerator and a stove. These apartments also have window air conditioners and wall heaters. Each student receives a bed, desk, dresser, and chair.
Floor Plan B (H-court only) is a suite-style unit housing five students in three bedrooms with one bathroom and a common living room. These renovated units have central heating and air conditioning. Each student receives a bed, desk, dresser, and chair. H-court units do not have a full kitchen; they have a small kitchenette area in which students may place small appliances, such as a microwave, small refrigerator, or toaster oven (not provided). Because of this, students living in H-court must purchase a meal plan in accordance with university requirements. Also, there is no quintupling discount for students in H-court because the price is already adjusted for five students.

Students who are oversubscribed will receive a discounted housing rate. For involuntary oversubscriptions, the discounted rate will remain as long as the student continues in the same room. For voluntary oversubscriptions, discounts will be applied for only that time spent in an oversubscription; if a room returns to standard capacity during the course of a term, discounts will be prorated by the week. If a student is assigned to an oversubscribed room during the course of a term, discounts will be prorated for the semester from the date of assignment. Please see the housing policies for more information.
