Student Life

Living on Campus

We designed our Residence Life program to contribute to the development of the residential students by creating a positive living and learning environment. We are continually creating and enhancing programs directed towards educating the student by offering supportive services and dynamic programming opportunities.

Our Director of Residence Life, Area Coordinator and Graduate Assistants along with Resident Assistants (student staff) will offer assistance in the transition to campus to form friendships with other floor members and encourage participation in floor/campus programs. Our residence halls are just one element of the student life experience, but a key element that we invite you to explore!  

Housing Information

Building preferences

When applying for housing you will be asked about your building preferences. First year females live in Kirby Hall and first year males live in McHugh Hall. These spaces will be offered based on when housing applications are completed/submitted. Our goal is to have an accommodating environment for our first year students. Check out our residence halls to determine your preferences.

Living Learning Communities

Living-Learning Communities are a new and exciting housing opportunity where a student lives with other interested students and participates in programs centered around a theme or common interest. The 2020-2021 incoming class will be the first class to have the option to participate in Living Learning Communities; students will have the option to indicate their interest on the housing application. For the upcoming academic year, the option is a Wellness Living Learning Community.
