Residential Life wants your on-campus experience to be a great one! Starting with Move-In Day we want you to feel welcome and get connected. In addition to making great connections we want you to flourish and develop new skills. To accomplish all of this we have fantastic staff to assist you, Resident Rights & Responsibilities to help you be successful, and programs and activities to help you have a great time.

To see more of what we are about check out our pages on the Residence Hall Options under the Living On Campus drop-down menu at the top of the page. If you have more questions you can contact our office or head to our Meet The Staff page under the About Us drop-down menu to find out which staff member to contact directly. When you live on campus, you are right in the heart of it all and are able to get the most out of your college experience!

 Information for Parents & Family

Sending a loved one off to college can be difficult as well as exciting. There are a lot of new experiences and fantastic opportunities available to your student. You care about them and want them to do well. We also want them to do well and develop into successful people. We can work together to help you help your student. The biggest thing that you can do to help your student is to refer them to University staff. We have resources, experience and ways to help many different concerns or issues that may come up that go underutilized because we do not know what your student is struggling with unless they tell us. On the other end, there are so many truly fantastic opportunities that do not exist outside of the college environment and we can help your student take advantage of those opportunities if we know what they are looking for.

Check out Parent's & Family on the Drop Down Menu above for more!
