Our residence halls offer a wide variety of comfortable living options, from traditional to contemporary.

    Each hall is staffed with a professional, full-time, live-in residence director who is on call 24/7 year-round. Each wing or living area is staffed with a resident assistant. All residence hall staff assist with relevant, fun programming that will help shape your academic and social growth.

    The cost of living on campus varies according to your residence hall accommodations and your choice of meal plans. All resident students are required to purchase a meal plan. Learn more about our variety of plans, dining locations, and more.
