Build a Foundation for your College Experience:
Live on Campus

On-campus living is a critical component of your collegiate experience and we encourage you to invest in this opportunity and lay a strong foundation for your future.

When you make the residence halls your home, research shows that you will earn better grades, get more involved in campus life, have more interaction with faculty, feel like a part of the campus community, and be more likely to graduate.
