Residence Life Handbook

Be sure to read through the Residence Life Handbook. You are responsible for understanding the contents of the Residence Life Handbook. In addition to policies and procedures, you’ll learn best practices to avoid roommate conflicts, how to set up your gaming console, and what to do if you get locked out of your room. So, be sure to refer back to the handbook any time you have questions. Additional questions or concerns should be directed to your assigned Residence Assistant or the Office of Residence Life.
