The Department of Residential Life strives to create a safe and inclusive residential community that develops and supports opportunities for intellectual and social development and prepares students to become purposeful contributors to our global society. We also provide resources that support our students in accomplishing their academic and personal goals. Residential Life staff are trained in facilities management, community engagement, crisis management, and conflict resolution, as well as interpersonal communications, in order to assist our students to achieve their aspirations.
Each residence hall is supervised by a professional building staff member and student resident assistants who work together to maintain close contact with students to help make their experience living on campus a positive one.
The university offers a variety of housing options tied to specific programs of study for first-year students known as Living Learning Communities (LLCs). The LLCs offer students a supportive, achievement-oriented environment with opportunities for relationship building around common interests as well as continued learning outside the classroom.
