Residence Life

Living on campus is one of the most rewarding aspects of college. You'll discover a sense of belonging, forge lifelong friendships, and engage with students from a breadth of backgrounds and lifestyles. With a wide array of social and athletic activities, residence halls and apartments are far more than places to sleep. But, since all living options offer, at most, a ten-minute commute from your bed to your classroom, the odds are good you’ll get plenty of that too.

A preview of our Residence Life website is captured below.  Visit the Residence Life website for comprehensive information about student housing.
