Living in an Academic Community

The Office of Residence Life strives to facilitate the creation of residential communities which help to promote the development of the whole student. It is our goal that the communities which develop in the residence halls not only support academic achievement, but also the personal growth of each individual student. Through programmatic opportunities, the guidance of student leaders, and the shared responsibility of the residents, we aspire to create communities in which students are able to reach their fullest potential.


Residence Hall Programming

A variety of programmatic opportunities exist within the residence halls. Whether planned by student staff members, hall council, or fellow residents, the residence halls prove to be dynamic and active communities.

Community Standards and Individual Responsibility

Community Standards are mutually agreed upon expectations and guidelines for living in the residential communities. In order for these to be successful, it is important for residents to take responsibility for their own behavior and to hold each other accountable to these expectations.
