Once in a lifetime community

Be Seen and Known

As a student living in campus housing, you will have the opportunity to engage in programs designed to support your out-of-classroom learning. Even more importantly, you will be able to take part in a unique, once in a lifetime community. 

Resident Directors, Graduate Assistants and Resident Advisors in your residence hall work to provide resources, craft unique programs and help you feel seen and known as a part of our residential community.
