About Residence Life

The Office of Residence Life is a rapidly growing department with 8 professional and administrative staff members, 14 Resident Directors, 89 Resident Assistants, 19 residence halls and apartment communities offering a variety of living options to nearly 3,000 residents. Since 2005, the department has added over 800 beds through new construction and renovation, and a new 290 bed residence hall that opened in the fall of 2013.

The primary focus of the Office of Residence Life is to support the success of our residents. The department strives to enhance the academic experience of our students and help build connections by fostering a comprehensive learning environment, which will promote maturity, responsibility, and above all, academic success. Opportunities for student engagement are abundant through positions as student staff members, Hall Government, the Residence Hall Association, the National Residence Hall Honorary and Resident Assistant Council.

Our Resident Directors work directly with the students in the halls and through the mentioned student groups. Resident Directors are responsible for the supervision and advisement of these groups.
