Our residence halls provide opportunities for students to engage in leadership roles, interact with other students by attending activities, seek academic support services such as advising and tutoring, or just hang out with friends in lounges equipped with TVs, pool tables, ping-pong tables, and a variety of other fun stuff!

Living on campus is fun, exciting, and challenging! There is a strong sense of community in our halls and students play a central role in creating an environment that values understanding and respect.

Students consistently give the residence hall staff, safety and security, and their experiences in the residence halls an excellent rating in our annual Quality of Life Survey.
