We require all students to live on campus for the duration of their time as an undergraduate student unless they’re commuting from their parent's permanent home address.
This college experience enables you and your neighbors to grow together through first-year experiences and gives upperclassmen opportunities to lead and build a healthy community.
All of our residence halls enjoy Residence Life programming, which promotes a living-learning community atmosphere and holistic student development by engaging and challenging residents in faith, learning, and serving.
