Housing & Residence Life

Learning to live on your own is one of the important and fun aspects of college life. When you live on campus, you’re a part of a community. In the residential environment, you’ll grow socially and academically, and be exposed to different cultures and ways of thinking. You’ll form study groups, make friends and find other ways to connect with other students.

You’ll also learn independence and have to make decisions that might not have traditionally fallen on you. But you’ll do it within the safe confines of campus, where you’ll have support resources like the counseling or health center, the chapel, your resident assistant, tutoring services and of course, your roommate and floor mates.

All of our residence halls—Coblentz, Memorial, Meyran, Shriner and Smith—have lounges where students can cook, relax and attend building activities. And students have two options for grabbing a bite to eat—The Blazer in the campus center and the main dining hall in Coblentz.
