Living On Campus

Home Away From Home

There's nothing like bonding with your floormates and creating lifelong friendships when living on-campus. You'll be surrounded by students experiencing similar journeys and have support when you need it. From hall and community programs to athletic and campus events, to leadership roles and on-campus employment, your calendar will be full and your skills will soar!
