Make ODU Your Home Away From Home

The Office of Residence Life provides housing, programs and support services for students living on ODU's campus. The residence halls are a community living environment where students learn to be considerate of others, and what it truly means to be in a community. Residence halls offer students a wonderful opportunity to grow socially, emotionally and intellectually - and have a lot of fun at the same time!

For many, ODU's Residence Life program has allowed them to have 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.
