Your room in residence is waiting!

New Students HousingWe believe that our residence system is a great way to ensure success in your studies. In fact, students living in residence have an average GPA that is three points higher than students not living in residence.

Our community is designed to support you. Living in residence as a returning student also provides you with a number of leadership opportunities. Visit the Residence Life page to learn more about the different ways you can become involved in your residence community!
