1 out of 4 first year students continue living on campus their second year. Hear what returning students said about why they continue to live on campus.
"My favorite part of living on campus is living down the hall from my friends—we can study together, have fun with one of the Covid-safe activities the RAs plan, or just hang out. Plus, classes, food, and the best study spots are only a short walk away." - Rebecca S., Senior, Swanson Hall
"I like that everything is so close to where you live! It only takes about 10 mins to get all around campus just by walking. I also like that you don't really have to worry about scraping off your car every day to get to class because everything is so close. I also like that the prices are pretty competitive." - Aubrey H.
"Being close to classes as well as having quick and easy access to dining facilities. Also I think that it is nice to have your friends close by and easily be able to meet somewhere where everyone has access and there is common space." - Mark P.

All Residence Halls require key card access to enter and bedrooms have locking doors. Housing staff and University Police do rounds of the buildings to make sure entrances are secure, and that there no other security or safety issues!
Providing Flexibility, Support and Care
When you live on campus, you live closer to friends, campus resources, faculty, and staff! All on-campus students have direct access to a Resident Manager or Resident Assistant that can answer questions, provide support and guidance.
Housing understands that you are a student first. Living on campus offers flexibility for internships, graduation, or a study abroad program: we’ll allow you to break your agreement if your life changes. Off-campus leases generally can't and won't be broken for unexpected circumstances.
