Living on Campus

There are many benefits to living on campus including convenience, opportunities to develop life-long friendships, and to live in an environment that fosters the educational and personal growth of students.

The Office of Residence Life promotes community and student development by creating a highly supportive, integrative environment of learners that enriches the overall collegiate experience of residential students. Through collaborative programs and services within the Division of Student Life, the department will provide life enriching opportunities that foster the intellectual, social, emotional, and personal growth and well-being of students.

While living in an environment that promotes safety, students also benefit from the opportunity to learn about other cultures and lifestyles. The concepts of self-respect and respect for others, tolerance of and celebration of diversity, ethical behavior and personal growth are fostered via community-based educational and social programs.

The convenience of living on campus provides students easy access to numerous campus resources such as faculty and academic advisors, the library, computer labs, the fitness center and student organizations.

Studies have shown students who live in the residence halls vs. commuting to campus do better academically and also are more likely to graduate from college.
