When you live on campus, you are able to immerse yourself in college life and take advantage of the opportunities right outside your door. You will enjoy the convenience of all-inclusive living, while having direct access to your classes, the library, student organizations, and events that make campus life rewarding. You will join a community of fellow residents, faculty, and staff members and make friendships that last a lifetime.
