Living on campus allows you to be close to your classes, the library, the bookstore, dining facilities, and other campus resources. Plus, your friends and classmates will be close by, making it easier to form study groups.

Friendship & Community

Living on campus allows you to make friends without having to fight traffic. Residential communities are a great way to get involved, make connections and share common interests. Chances are you’ll form some long-lasting friendships with your roommates and fellow classmates in your hall, building or community.
