The Office of Housing & Residence Life

Living on campus is an essential part of the college experience!

Residence life is convenient and allows you to be in the middle of the action. Let’s face it: You won’t go hungry with our modern dining options, won’t have to fight for a parking spot in the morning and will live with people from across the country and world.

Because you’ll be so close to the classrooms, you’ll be able to roll out of bed and walk right over to start taking history notes in less than 10 minutes. Students who live on campus typically make better grades and develop into campus leaders while never having to worry about washing dishes or paying monthly bills.
