Advantages of Living on Campus

  • Convenience- Short walks to classes, places to eat and places to study. You’re in the middle of it all –your classmates, your friends, work-out facilities, your professors. You’re within walking distance to everything on campus.
  • Connections- Living on campus gives you the opportunity to make important connections that will be helpful in your college career and for many, those first connections will last a lifetime. Your friends and classmates are just down the hallway.
  • Academic support- Support for your academic efforts is reinforced by study lounges, the library, the Learning Center and also from your roommates, floor mates and classmates. Research indicates that resident students tend to be more successful academically and graduate sooner.
  • Utilities- No utility bills here. Electric, heating, local phone, basic cable and Internet are all included in your room and board rates.
  • Rolls of quarters- Your use of the laundry facilities is paid for by your environmental fee. Now you can keep your rolls of quarters for other things!
  • Not just books- Being engaged as a student includes joining a student organization, attending campus concerts, athletic events, conferences, and enjoying a latte or coffee at Knots café.
  • We do the cooking- You don’t have to shop for food or prepare it (or do the dishes).
