Residence Life staff work with students to develop their independence, their ability to communicate effectively, and their appreciation for and engagement in a vibrant and diverse community.

We seek to create a safe and comfortable living environment supportive of the academic mission of the College that allows students to achieve success both in and outside of the classroom. 

The Residence Life Office operates as part of Student Affairs.  Students can learn more about campus leadership opportunities, housing assignments, residential policies and procedures, judicial affairs, and wellness education by visiting our office in the Wismer Center, above the bookstore.
