Residence Life Staff

Residence Life provides housing, programs, and support services for resident students. The residence halls are a community living environment, where students must not only be concerned about themselves, but also the people living with and around them. Residence halls offer an environment where students can grow socially, emotionally, and intellectually.

For many, the residence life program presents an opportunity for meaningful interactions with new people from various backgrounds and cultures, as well as an opportunity to make the most out of campus programs and activities.
