The Department of Housing and Residence Life provides a living and learning environment for students. Ten residential buildings and one off-campus facility provide housing for 52 percent of the student body. Students living on campus participate in hall meetings and attend workshops coordinated by the Resident Managers and the Student Assistants in each building. Some of the workshop topics include personal safety, solving roommate conflicts, and college drinking. Approximately 72 students receive residence life training each year to serve as desk assistants and resident life assistants in the residence halls.
