Eager to learn more about living on campus?

See what residence life is really like:


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 (though, maybe you should shower first). 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. Make the most of your college years by choosing to live on campus.
