Living on Campus
Your home away from home.
New freshmen are required to live on-campus for two years and often start out in smaller residence halls with one roommate, a community kitchen and lounges, and a floor full of potential new friends.
Residence halls operate on a "living and learning" concept. As a student, you will be challenged to improve interpersonal skills as you learn to live peacefully and to interact with others from different cultural, regional, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
You will enjoy a healthy range of adult freedom, yet still have access to professional and student-trained staff to offer support, resources and activities.
Although you are required to live on-campus, you still need to complete the following Housing Forms. These forms are necessary to complete your room assignment, your roommate assignment and ensure a smooth move-in process when you arrive on campus.
- Housing Application (Newly Admitted Freshmen)
- Housing Agreement
- Meal Plan Selection
- Memorandum of Understanding (for students under 18 years of age)
NOTE: You will not be allowed to move into your residence hall if you have not met the immunization requirements. Please refer to the Student Health Services section for more information on immunization requirements.
You will need several items to make your on-campus living experience comfortable and stress free. We've provided a list of items you should consider bringing to campus - many of these items would be great requests for high school graduation gifts! And if you have an item that you are not sure whether or not to bring it to campus, we've also provided a list of things you cannot bring.
Take time to review these lists and enjoy your preparation for living on-campus!
