The university provides a number of housing accommodations located throughout the campus for undergraduate and graduate students. Since the physical environment of students is an important part of the educational experience, the university takes great pride in providing supervised and carefully planned modern facilities. Various lifestyle options are available within the residence halls so students can select the area that best suits their individual needs. Visit the Housing Web site for current housing information and rates.
Each residence hall is staffed with a residence director and several student resident assistants. These key people help create a residential living environment that can sustain productive and creative educational experiences. During the year, students will come into contact with a variety of other students, many of whom have differing lifestyles, social and moral values, and cultural backgrounds.
Note: The college requires all freshman and sophomore students to live in the residence halls, except as excused for definite reasons expressed in writing and approved by the director of Auxiliary Services. Exceptions can be found in the Standards of Residence Handbook located on the Housing website.
