In partnership with students, faculty, and staff; in support of the educational goals of the university; the Office of Housing & Residential Life facilitates a comfortable residential community through which accommodations, activities, and experiences encourage students to progress toward becoming self-directed individuals.

Residence hall living encourages students to develop friendships, join study groups and intramural teams, and develop and apply leadership skills. Residential life staff help residents set goals, make friends, resolve problems, and get connected in the community and around campus. With a 24/7 on-site staff, utilities included, combined payment through your student account, and maintenance requests available online we worry about the details so students can focus on what matters most.
