Browning Hall


Incoming freshmen admitted with a CELS major who request on-campus housing are automatically eligible for assignment to the CELS LLC residence hall. Placement in the residence hall is not guaranteed—rooms are assigned based on the date of receipt of housing deposit and space availability. Therefore, we encourage incoming freshmen to submit their housing deposit early.

Programming and Traditions

Here are just a few of the opportunities available to you through the CELS LLC as a first year CELS major, whether or not you live in Browning Hall:

  • Professional academic advising
  • College success workshops
  • CELS Student Ambassador support
  • Meet the faculty events
  • Social and community networking programs
