Residential Life


The best way to experience all that college life has to offer you is by enjoying the independence of living in our university residence halls. Living on campus will surround you with friends, fun and endless opportunities to pursue your academic and co-curricular interests. With a diverse student body and a wide variety of activities on campus, it’s easy to find a place to fit in and make memories that will last a lifetime.

In fact, research shows that when you live on-campus you will improve your classroom performance, be more likely to graduate on time and develop connections that are more lasting.
