Your success is our success!
The university's position is that the support system provided by living on campus enhances the academic efforts and social adjustment of new students - and provides important benefits to all returning students as well.
Increase your odds for academic achievement
Studies have shown that students residing on campus do better academically and are more likely to graduate. Living in a residence hall community makes it easier for you to access the library and to connect with study groups. No travel to and from an off-campus residence means you will be less likely to miss classes, and you will have more time to study.
Eat quick and healthy meals
Meals are nutritious, convenient, and easy. The dining centers and retail food locations on campus provide a variety of healthy foods. Meal plan participation saves you the time of grocery shopping, cooking and washing dishes.
Campus life isn't all about academics and work! Involvement in social and cultural activities on campus is an important and rewarding part of your university experience. Why not participate? You're already here!
Make new friends
Keep in mind, too, that friendships formed with roommates and others who share the residence hall experience enrich each day on campus, and these relationships often last a lifetime.
Never worry about parking
Did we mention you won't have to find a parking space? Living on campus offers convenience, improved academic achievement and a rewarding and diverse social experience. Don't miss the opportunity!
