Why live on campus?

Your home away from home

Living on campus gives you more than a place to stay - it is your home away from home. You can take your first step to independence with the comfort and security living on campus provides.

  • Quiet places to work and study
  • Friends and peers next door
  • Convenient location - walk to class
