On-campus living provides opportunities for involvement, activities, and knowledge. We believe that learning does not end in the classroom but is enhanced by interacting with a diverse group of residents, participating in leadership opportunities, and engaging in life-learning activities. It is highly recommended that a Housing Application is completed with payment of application fee, prior to your arrival on campus Click Here
