Office of Residential Life


Welcome home to your Charger Community!

Welcome Home logoCollege is full of new opportunities. It also comes with exciting responsibilities and major decisions. One of the biggest choices you will make throughout your time here is deciding where you’ll live. We hope you will choose to live on campus – your home in more ways than one.

Why Live on Campus?

Living in one of our residence halls enables you to participate in a well-rounded educational experience that caters to your personal and professional development.

The residence halls are home for your college family and offer convenience you probably will never experience again. Simply put: Living in our residence halls is your best option because you are located near everything that is important to you.

The research shows that those who live in our residence halls earn better grades and are more likely to pursue an advanced degree. On-campus students also develop deeper connections with faculty and their fellow students, experience a higher level of engagement, and, ultimately, have a more successful and satisfying college career.  

Right outside of your residence hall, you have easy access to your professors and a wealth of campus resources, including the Peterson Library and the Beckerman Recreation Center, which is open nearly 18 hours a day.

Easier to Get Involved

By living on campus, you are more plugged in, and there is always something to do.

The Office of Residential Life and the Center for Student Engagement, Leadership, and Orientation annually organize thousands of social, cultural, and academic programs as well as a wide variety of leadership opportunities for students.

In addition, students who live on campus have the opportunity to immerse themselves in a culturally diverse and vibrant campus life. These experiences will benefit you in any endeavor you choose to pursue in the future.

Make Friends for Life

Some of your most transformational experiences will take place outside of the classroom. You’ll forge lifelong relationships and build skills that will serve you well throughout your life.  

That’s why your Charger community is a smart choice. Talk to us today about all that living on campus has to offer.
