Living on Campus
Choosing to live on campus comes with many benefits -- such as living in an academically-supported environment, the ability to stay connected to campus through activities that foster educational, social, and leadership development and engaging with students from a variety of cultures, backgrounds and lifestyles.
Residential Life offers a living and learning environment, committed to the academic success and personal growth of our residents. Students can choose to live on an academic theme housing floor -- where students are clustered by academic major, making it easy to form study groups and make friends. We also offer quiet floors, which offer an optimal environment for studying. Our friendly and supportive hall staff are available 24 hours a day to provide guidance as well as educational and social programming for residents.
Living on campus, you'll enjoy the convenience of being close to classroom buildings, library, the Student Rec Center, Hulman Memorial Student Union and easy access to dining halls and a wide array of social and athletic activities.
