Making the Most of Your On-Campus Experience

Enjoy the convenience of living on campus.

You’ll never have to get in your car until you’re ready to head home for a break. You’ll only be minutes away from your classes, the library, the Student Union, computer labs, dining hall and social activities. There are study lounges and kitchen facilities in all halls; plus you’ll have access to the pool, and the Recreation Center.

Get involved.

With more than 80 clubs and organizations, you’re sure to find your niche, whether you’re interested in politics, religion, media, health, the performing arts or even karate. Residence Hall Association offers you additional opportunities to make new friends and get involved with residence hall and campus activities.

Make the grade.

Living on campus can aid in your academic success. Research suggests that students who live on campus are more likely to complete their college education, participate in university activities and adjust to new social situations.

Become a leader.

Because you’ll be so close to all the campus happenings, you’ll be more likely to become a leader of a campus organization. Not only does it look great on a resume, but leadership positions also help you develop communication and organization skills that will come in handy in the future. Residence hall students also have opportunities to become Resident Assistants and members of the Residence Hall Association.

Get a job.

Nicholls offers students numerous employment opportunities in campus offices. However, residence hall students are also eligible to work in their halls as Resident Assistants, Assistant Hall Directors, Hall Directors and student workers.

Never miss a meal.

All residence hall students can eat three hot meals a day without going to the grocery store, cooking or washing dishes. Dining options include the newly renovated Vernon F. Galliano Cafeteria, Student Union snack bar area, and the Smart Market in the Brady Apartments.

Forget monthly bills.

You’ll make one payment at the beginning of the semester and won’t have to worry about keeping up with rent and utility bills. Visit the Office of Financial Aid to learn how to use scholarships, grants and loans to pay for housing.

Maintain your privacy.

Our residence halls and apartment complex offer the perfect balance: enough privacy to study uninterrupted but plenty of social activities to make it easy to develop new friendships. Private rooms are available for those students who would like a room of their own.

Feel safe.

The Nicholls campus is patrolled by police commissioned law enforcement officers 24 hours each day of the year. In addition, students have access to 24/7 health and emergency services.

Log on.

There’s no excuse for not having time to type your term paper. Students living in residence halls have access to computer labs 24 hours each day.
