Living on Campus

Residence Living

Residence Life

The residence halls are more than just a place to lay your head, it's a living experience. You will be immersed in the campus atmosphere and environment. While academics is the primary focus, there will be plenty of time for entertainment, fun, and friends. It is our hope that your living experience will provide lifelong memories.
