Housing and Residence Life

Housing and Residence Life is dedicated to student learning inside and outside of the classroom by creating unique communities for students to call home in the residence halls and on-campus apartments. Office staff, Resident Directors, Resident Advisers & Community Advisers work to make a difference in the lives of the students with whom they interact.
