Why live on campus?

Your residence becomes your home away from home and your second family.

You'll meet people from around the world, be steps away from everything on campus, and just have a whole lot of fun. Residence provides a place for you to study and socialize, along with a personalized space to call your own.


Live just steps away from classes, the dining hall, and all other campus amenities and services. You'll also appreciate the safety and security of living on campus.


Develop a social circle, quickly and easily. Connect to a vibrant social scene, including movie nights, house dinners, and intramural sports with your housemates.


Benefit from a built-in support system, including friends, residence assistants, academic mentors, house executive, and live-in adult dons and families.


Eating on campus
