Reasons to Live on Campus

Why live on campus?

 

It Makes College Life Easier

Enjoy the convenience of being close to classes, computer labs, health & fitness center, campus events, and shuttle service! There are no commuter parking hassles, rooms to furnish or common areas to clean! Quiet Study Rooms are available in every hall!

Make Friends, Feel Connected!

You'll meet so many people when you live on campus - guaranteed! Friendships formed in college often last a lifetime. You always have people close by to study and spend time with!

No Hidden Costs

Pay one rate for housing and don't worry about extra monthly expenses, like utilities, cable, and internet.

Direct Link to the Internet

All students have access to a high speed internet connect in their rooms and all over campus. Connect via wireless or with an ethernet cable!

Build Leadership Skills

Research shows that students who live on campus are move involved in University activities. There are plenty of activities and organizations where you can develop leadership skills: Residence Hall Association, Student Government, Hall Government, Intramural Sports, Campus Clubs, the Dynamic Leadership Institute, and more!

Security

HRL takes great lengths to make sure each residence hall is safe and secure: a 24 hour information/security desk in each residence hall, 24 hour police patrol, emergency phones throughout campus, escort service from dusk to dawn, 24/7 locked halls, and daily security rounds by residence hall staff.
