Residence Life

Residence Life provides an environment that supports academic achievement and promotes individual development for traditional students living on campus.

Each living area is supervised by a graduate assistant and each hall is staffed by an upperclass Resident Assistant (RA) who can assist residents with needs related to daily life.

Urbana University requires all main campus students under 21 years of age, who do not have senior status, who are not married, who do not live with their parents or guardians who do not live within the established distance guidelines for commuters of 50 miles from campus, and who do not have a valid, documented and approved medical reason to the contrary are required to live on campus in a University residence hall and take a full board plan. Board in the residence halls consists of a nineteen (19) meal per week board plan. Non-first year students are eligible for a fifteen (15) meal per week board plan. Brunch is serviced on Saturday and Sunday mornings. No meals will be served during vacation periods. Failure to provide accurate information on the Residence Hall Agreement, Housing Questionnaire or Residence Hall Application may result in disciplinary action. Students who provide false information about their residency status and/or students who would be required to live on campus but do not contract for housing will be charged for room and board.

Questions about Residence Life can be directed to the Campus Life office.
