Residential Life and Housing

Who We Are




The Office of Residential Life and Housing creates an integrated academic and co-curricular educational environment for our residents by providing programs, services and facilities that contribute to the intellectual, social and cultural development of students.

We house 1,300 students in seven clean and safe residence halls. Each residence hall is supervised by a full-time, professional residence hall director (RHD) who is committed professionally and personally to the concept of the residence hall as a center of learning. The RHD lives and works in the hall throughout the year and supervises a staff of trained graduate and undergraduate resident assistants (RAs).

In addition, each building has hall attendants who register guests before they may enter the building during evening and late night hours.

Every year, the residents of each building elect a hall council. Through the Resident Student Association, these hall councils manage an activities budget, provide social and educational programs for residents, suggest additional policies that complement those established by the University and communicate student concerns to the Office of Residential Life and Housing.
