Residence Life & Housing Office

The Residence Life and Housing office is responsible for on-campus student housing, residential programming and student conduct. We want each student's residential experience to be positive and fulfilling. Our office strives to have residential communities that set a positive tone for learning and healthy interaction, formally and informally, among residential community members. Residence Life and Housing assists students who live on campus to develop intellectually, physically, socially, spiritually, culturally and professionally and, to that end, provides a comprehensive program of extra-curricular activities in concert with Student Affairs.
