Because when you live on campus you are already there.


Choosing to live on campus affords students the full college experience. With a mix of traditional halls, suite-style and apartment-style halls, as well as an apartment complex, students will find the accommodations and lifestyle they're looking for as they transition through college, all while placing them in the center of university life.

Our residence halls give students easy access to the events and activities happening around campus, surround them with friends, offer learning beyond the classroom and of course make the walk to class that much shorter. Plus, they're never far from getting something great to eat at one of our award-winning dining centers, the food court in Maucker Union, our cafe in Rod Library, a food cart or convenience store. Living on campus helps ease the transition to college life, gets students involved and makes them feel connected, all while they earn better grades on their track to graduating in four years.
