Housing

Under the direction of the Residence Life Staff, residence hall life plays a major role in the educational process. Each student is challenged to increase social skills, make new and lasting relationships, examine new ideas, learn new skills, and adjust to new and different situations and people.

To take full advantage of the holistic approach to education, all single, full-time students who have not reached the age of 22 and are not living with parents or with immediate relatives in the area are required to live in college residence halls. 

Our residence life staff, made up of resident directors and resident assistants, is here to serve you. Each hall has one or two resident assistants, who report to one resident director for each building. We encourage you to get to know your residence life staff!
