Residential Curriculum

Students who experience life on campus have the opportunity to "Thrive Where You Reside."

Living independently, sharing a space, self-management and more are all a part of the transition to college, and we are ready to partner on this journey with you. Our priority is to engage residential students in meaningful experiences to learn about themselves, about others and develop skills to become Spartan Ready.

The mission of the Office of Residence Life is to foster an inclusive residential community and dynamic learning experiences that promote student development and academic success.
