Residential College

The new Visual and Performing Arts Residential College (VPARC) will join together artists, architects, designers, musicians, actors, composers, technicians, scholars and arts administrators in a creative living-learning environment.

Broussard Hall is home to the new Visual & Performing Arts Residential College (VPARC), which is open to all first-year students with majors in the College of Art & Design and the College of Music & Dramatic Arts.

Conveniently located on the west side of campus, VPARC is near The 5 Dining Hall, Tiger Stadium, Middleton Library, and the Quad–where many first-year classes are held. It has some of the most spacious and plentiful common areas on campus and features mostly two-student rooms with community-style bathrooms. A select number of three-student rooms are also available.
