Why live on campus?
The residence halls provide a safe, convenient home-away-from-home, and a low-stress environment that encourages students academically, socially, and personally.
A helping hand can always be found from the staff such as resident advisors (RAs), who are experienced students who know what coming to college is really like. Every hall also has a full-time resource person, the residence coordinator (RC), who is available to students.
What is there to do? The halls provide a wide variety of programs and events — hundreds every year, in fact. From academic help to intramural sports teams to social activities, there’s always something happening in the halls and throughout campus, where getting there is just a quick stroll.
The highlight of the halls is the wide variety of people to meet and friends to make. Some of these relationships will last a lifetime. The halls provide a great opportunity to share with others the common experience of being in college while learning about each other’s varied backgrounds and interests.
Live in the center of it all! The halls provide easy access to classes, faculty members, and campus facilities such as the Campus Recreation Center, the library, Steger Student Life Center, Tangeman University Center, and others. No bad weather travels or parking delays here—walk to everything you need!
Putting safety first is a top priority for us. Our halls have all the safety features you’re looking for, including smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, and sprinkler systems. The front doors to each hall are locked and residents are responsible for checking in guests and escorting them at all times. Public Safety is an on-campus service, 24/7.
UC Housing personnel have collaborated with their primary furniture vendor, resulting in an innovative furniture design for a space-saving dresser that doubles as a desk. This dresser-desk will be introduced at Morgens Hall in August 2013, the first residence hall in the United States to provide this new furniture, and at select halls in the UC Housing portfolio.
