Residence LifeLiving on campus is not just a convenient place to eat, sleep, and study while you are away from home studying at university or college. Living on campus is about exploring new ideas, making new friends, and learning more about the world around you and how you fit into it. In fact, educational research indicates that living on-campus can play a vital role in a student’s academic and personal development. The intense interaction with peers from different family backgrounds, cultures, and countries, who have different values, career goals, and lifestyles, stimulates social and personal development. On-Campus Housing is not a place you live, it is a community to which you belong.
