Residence Halls: Robert Morris University Residence Halls | Robert Morris University


Welcome to your home away from home.

Students who live on campus like how our growing university keeps its small community feel. You can roll out of bed and be at class in minutes, power-nap between bio and lacrosse practice, and know what’s going on over the weekend before anyone else.

You’ll love the new residence halls, brighter spaces and first-class food and wellness options.

Parents will be impressed to know research shows students who live on campus earn better grades and are more likely to graduate. To learn more about living at RMU, click here.

We offer traditional, apartment- and suite-style living, all co-ed. And, as more students are choosing to make the RMU campus their home, we’re expanding options. In fall of 2011, we opened the 190-bed, six-story Peter Salem Hall, which boosted on-campus residential capacity to nearly 1,500 beds.
