Residence Life and You

If you were to ask anyone you know who lived on campus during their college experience if they have any fond memories, you’ll likely hear “Yes, of course!” Living on campus is an essential part of the quintessential college experience, and we are committed to establishing and maintaining a living and learning environment where you can thrive.

Your Resident Assistant (RA) is your primary contact point for most issues you may face. Think of them as a helper; they’re here to answer questions relating to campus life, assist in resolving problems you may be facing, and direct you to resources if you want to get more involved in educational and social activities.

If you live on campus, you are required to purchase a Declining Balance Meal Plan. Check your Residence Hall to determine which plan is right for you.


Never sit around idly in a laundry room again (unless you want to, of course). With LaundryView, you’ll know when machines are open and when to tend to your business.

Your safety is of utmost importance to us. All residence halls are monitored 24/7 and the parking lots are gated. Please review the Safety section of the Residential Living Guide to learn more about preventive measures relating to fire safety, communicative disease and your health, hurricane preparedness and evacuation, and more.
