Our residence life program emphasizes growth and development of all individuals within the living and learning environment, no matter where you are on the faith journey. We are committed to providing a residence life program that nurtures the integration of the whole person intellectually, socially, emotionally, physically and spiritually.
Residential living provides a good balance of challenge and support--in the form of friends and floormates and activities--as you pursue your academic goals. In residence life we emphasize the intrinsic value of each person and endeavor to create opportunities for students to find value in the diverse gifts and talents of each member of the community.
All residence halls include cable TV access, wired and wireless internet, on-site laundry facilities and card-access security.
