Residence halls are more than a place to sleep and study. It is a community of people living together and learning about themselves and the world around them. They constitute an important part of a college education.
Our staff’s philosophy is that community living contributes to the intellectual, social, physical and moral development of the student. Our goal is to help you become well-rounded individuals. The key to this kind of development is involvement. Research shows that students who live on campus are more likely to do better in class and persist to graduation, be more satisfied with their college experience, and more likely to participate in outside of class activities. Staff offer programs that are fun, some are educational and always encouraging you to interact or learn something new. We challenge residents to become involved members of the residence hall community; the potential is unlimited. Living on campus can be one of the most memorable experiences of your college career!
You can reside in one of four University residence halls. Garbee Hall Complex is where the majority of students reside. Conveniently located just a step outside to the new student center you will find student mailboxes, dining, the bookstore, and snack bar. Hofmaster Apartments and Lee Tower is apartment living for upper classmen. Each suite provides a common living area with full kitchen. South Village is our new suite-style housing units. This suite style building offers 5 styles of living arrangement, ranging from a single room to sharing a suite with 6 people. All suites have a bathroom and common space. The suite style housing is available for upperclassmen and early deposit freshmen as space is available.
