Home

Residential Life provides more than just a place to stay for our 4,000 residents.  Our residence halls and apartments are home to a welcoming and supportive community of students and staff.  Students love the independence of living on their own and the convenience of being close to class, campus life, academic opportunities and recreational activities each day.

Whether you are thinking about applying or already live on-campus, we encourage you to explore our communities and amenities, learn about ways to get involved, and learn more about our office!
