We're glad you have decided to join us!
We are sure you will find that when you live on campus, you live the good life, good times, and great friends!Residence halls are more than just a place to sleep. Personal development during the undergraduate years occurs as a result of students engaging in activities inside and outside the classroom. Our Residence Life  staff strives to provide students with support and resources, as well as engaging residence hall activities that will develop a sense of community and Viking Pride.


Individuals who believe they have experienced or witnessed crimes, University policy violations, acts of sexual misconduct, or other questionable incidents related to student behavior are encouraged to report these incidents to appropriate University resources. If you have questions about how or whether to report, a representative of the Office of the Dean of Students is available to meet with you.
