High School Students: Are You Thinking About Attending UC and Living  on Campus?

Why live on campus?

Residence hall communities 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. Resident advisors (RAs), who are experienced students, know what coming to college is really like. Every hall community also has a full-time resource person, the residence hall director (RHD), who is available to students.

What is there to do?

Residence Hall communities 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. Getting there is just a quick stroll.

The highlight of the communities is the wide variety of people to meet and friends to make. Some of these relationships will last a lifetime. Hall communities 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!

Residence Hall communities provide easy access to classes, faculty members, and campus facilities such as the Campus Recreation Center, the library, dining centers, Steger Student Life Center, Tangeman University Center, and others. No bad weather travels or parking delays—walk to everything you need!

We put safety first!

Our Residence Hall communities 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. They oversee the student-operated Nightride free transportation service, provide crime prevention tips, emergency preparedness information, and much more. There is also a K-9 program which expands the capabilities of the UC Police Department.
