Living on campus provides students the opportunity to become part of a dynamic community. This community includes students who have different backgrounds, lifestyles, interests and dreams. You will experience the richness of differences and the reality that everyone has something valuable to contribute. Our staff are here to help provide that holistic educational experience and to meet your housing needs.

Please take the opportunity to learn more about our halls, leadership initiatives, staff and residence life services. We welcome your thoughts and questions.‌


The Department of Residence Life creates the foundation for inclusive communities that encourage students to think, act and work purposefully towards a lifetime of service to others.
