- About Us
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.

A few rules to live by.
Students can only live off campus if they meet one of these:
- Are over 23 years of age by the start of the school year
- Have senior status (over 90 credit hours completed) by the start of the school year
- Live within 30 driving miles to campus Are married and/or have a dependent child
- Have a medical reason or accommodation need on file with Student Health or Disability Services
Regardless of where you life -on or off campus - all students are required to complete the On Campus Housing Application or the Off Campus Housing Application and send it to the Student Affairs Office.
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.
