Welcome to Residential Life!

It is our goal to make your residential life experience not only the best experience possible, but also the most rewarding for your future.

Live. Learn. Lead.

Our guiding principles are designed to develop residents through learning and engagement opportunities while providing a sense of belonging and support.

Community Engagement

Community is at the core of what we do and can be seen through our Neighborhood C.A.R.E. initiatives and Community Engagement Model within our residential areas.

Our program consists of the South 40 and the North Side, where over 4500 students call Residential Life home during the academic year.
