Welcome to Student Housing at
Student Housing reaches beyond having a safe, affordable, comfortable place to live on campus. It’s about the people you meet and the experiences students have as they go through the academic year together. The informal social, support network that forms between residents contributes to a rewarding and memorable experience. The student experience is further enhanced by a variety of programs offered by the Student Life staff and CAB (Campus Activity Board).
Residing in student housing brings the advantages of greater interaction with peers, faculty, student and learning services, and an increased level of social/extra-curricular involvement resulting in an overall higher rate of student success. We invite students to take advantage of the opportunities, challenges and new experiences student housing has to offer. If you need assistance contact the staff in the office or one of our many student leaders. Welcome to your new home.
