The Benefits of Living on Campus
Studies show that students who live on campus are more likely to develop close relationships with other students, become engaged with faculty, perform better academically, and have an overall satisfaction with their college experience. As members of a diverse community, living on campus means students are better connected to the life of the University—whether they participate in the multitude of planned events or take advantage of the many spontaneous opportunities that arise over the course of the day or evening on campus.
On-campus living cultivates a feeling of family that cannot be truly duplicated off campus. Community communicates a sense of care and acceptance. When you ask alumni about their college experience, they tell stories of friends that were made in the residence halls, experiences that occurred around campus, or times of major growth that often happened in the formative environment of living on-campus.
