What you need to know about living on campus
Housing and Residence Hall Information
The Housing/Residence Life and Dining Services Office provides a quality living and learning environment for students housed in the University residence hall and apartment system. They are concerned with the oversight and management of residence services, campus food services, residence hall facilities and educational programming activities. They strive to provide many opportunities for the development and enhancement of human relation skills, personal value systems and leadership skills.
University Residency Policy
The University requires all single freshmen students younger than 21 years old not residing with their parents or legal guardians must reside in University housing and participate in a University meal plan. All freshmen younger than 21 who choose to live off campus will need to complete a Freshman Residency Webform and return it to Housing/Residence Life and Dining Services no later than move-in day.
