Residence Halls

Residence Halls

Learn what to expect while living on campus

Residence Life provides an environment that supports academic achievement, promotes individual development and creates a sense of belonging to a vibrant campus community.

Living in the residence halls gives you an opportunity to connect with other students outside of the classroom, enriching your college experience and creating friendships that last a lifetime.

Our living areas are supervised by graduate assistants. Each hall is staffed by an upper-class Resident Assistant (RA) who can assist you with daily needs.

Living Requirements

A few rules to live by.

  • You can take advantage of a full board plan if you:
  • Are under 21 years of age, or
  • Do not have senior status, or
  • Are not married, or
  • Do not live with your parents or guardians within the established distance guidelines for commuters of 50 miles from campus, or

The hard facts.

If for any reason you do not want to live on campus, you must provide a valid, documented medical reason for approval.

If you don’t provide accurate information on the Residence Hall Agreement, Housing Questionnaire or Residence Hall Application it may result in disciplinary action. 

If you provide false information about your residency status you will be charged for room and board.

If you don’t contract for housing (even though you’re required to do so), you will still be charged for room and board.

For questions about housing requirements, please contact Campus Life.
