Welcome Home!

Live on campus and immerse yourself in student life. Our class-year housing system is designed to provide an exceptional opportunity for students to build community with one another and become integrated into the greater university community. Our Housing and Auxiliary Services team works to create excellent living environments, while the Department of Residential Life invites students to ask intentional questions about themselves and their identities, their relationship to others, and how they can become leaders in a global society.
