Living on Campus
Phase II - Select Your Home Away from Home
Now that you have secured your enrollment, it's time to plan for "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 a Housing Application (Newly Admitted Freshmen), a Housing Agreement Meal Plan Selection and a Memorandum of Understanding form (for students under 18 years of age). These forms are necessary to complete your room assignment, your roommate assignment and ensure a smooth move-in process when you arrive on campus. You will be notified when these forms available.
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. What to Bring (Not to Bring) lets you know what is allowed in the residence halls. Many of these items would be great requests for high school graduation gifts. Take time to review these lists and enjoy your preparation for living on-campus!
