Housing & Residence Life

Through services including on-campus housing, residential programs, involvement opportunities, and off-campus resources, our goal is to allow students to focus on their education in and out of the classroom. We strive to create meaningful student experiences in the residence halls and on-campus while encouraging students to learn and grow together in community.

Our Commitment

We develop inclusive, student-centered residential communities that enhance the academic experience of each resident while providing services that support the greater university community. We are committed to:

  • Delivering quality opportunities and services that anticipate the needs and exceed the expectations of the University community by ensuring that the residential experience is our highest priority
  • Providing safe, secure, and well-maintained residential environments that promote personal success, social engagement, and global responsibility
  • Fostering an appreciation of each individual in ways that increase awareness through active, intentional, and continuous engagement with diversity
  • Nurturing the holistic development of residential students through communities that promote co-curricular learning
  • Improving our practices and procedures through ongoing assessment, targeted goal development, and benchmarking our progress

Our Commitment to Sustainability

We are committed to the active pursuit of environmental sustainability. We will serve our University community as professional examples and personal proponents of institutional change, and foster dialogue amongst residents who are becoming the leaders of our green future. We are committed to:

  • Providing our residents, guests, staff, and campus partners with the knowledge, skills, and resources to actively contribute as environmentally responsible leaders in local and global communities
  • Building and maintaining urban residential facilities that seek to minimize our ecological footprint
  • Supporting the availability and encouraging the use of locally-grown food, served in a sustainable way
  • Recognizing the impact of our purchasing decisions and encouraging the use of environmentally responsible products and services
