219 Kiefaber Street, a modest-sized house with a plain exterior and a well-kept porch, is home to six University of Dayton male undergraduates. The spacious interior, more roomy than the outside view lets on, is adorned with different flags, board games and posters, with a large dining table in one corner and a pillow-strewn couch in another. The first floor, despite being the only part of the house with air conditioning, is where the boys prefer to do their homework and hang out. Even so, each bedroom is generously decorated with enough personal touches to make the house feel much more homey.No Comments

A 12-student house on Brown Street turned into Kappa Delta’s UD home last August. After the sorority became established on campus in 2013, Kappa Delta soon earned a temporary house on Stonemill Road. But as the Greek organization began flourishing, KD made 1316 Brown St., its official home. The newly renovated five-bedroom and one group bathroom house is roomy enough for 10 KD council members. The front door, however, is always open to its general chapter members.
A pale yellow house stands at the end of the 400 block of Lowes. Inside, lives two sets of sorority bigs and littles, and one honorary Theta Phi Alpha. The five senior residents are living together for the second year in a row, but this time, they each have their own room, and there are three bathrooms split among the group. The house is handicap accessible, but for now, it is used as a “student engagement” theme house that the housemates gained through the Special Interest Housing process.No Comments
The newly renovated exterior of the three-bedroom, one-bathroom house built in 1909 has a mystery tomato plant in the spacious backyard, small doors that turn moving into a game of Tetris, and is filled with six junior residents who say that although they spend a decent amount of time cooking, Jimmy John’s drivers are their most frequent visitors.No Comments

The residents of 339 Stonemill Road met during their first year, from both the rowing club and their shared floor in Marycrest. They grew closer during their second year in Virgina W. Kettering Residence Hall and their third year in Gardens next to Campus South—where they enjoyed wizarding-themed games and honing their cooking skills. Their senior year, they joked that they “just kinda picked up” their last housemate, though they have known him well for two years. All of the roommates are in the engineering school and plan to graduate in May 2017.No Comments
