Residence Life

Mission Statement: The Office of Residence Life seeks to foster self‐development, good citizenship, democratic principles, and an environment of self-understanding and appreciation through the acquisition of decision‐making skills on the part of the student and through the emulation and promotion of values inclusive of respect for fellow students, honesty, and student involvement in the residence hall governing structure.

Students at a residence hall on campus.

Led by a team that works hard to create safe and healthy environments, our residence halls are dynamic communities that support students as they grow academically and personally.

We have four residence halls that are centrally located on our main campus, additional residence hall floors at our Griscom Education Center, and an additional residence hall at a nearby university. All offer close access to classes, dining, activities, and more.

Rooms house up to three students and offer wireless internet. Each residence hall offers on-site staff, study spaces, free laundry facilities, and other amenities. All rooms are air-conditioned and have fire alarms and sprinkler systems.

A student who requests housing accommodations due to a disability must complete the housing accommodations request form and provide the appropriate documentation to the coordinator of counseling and accessibility for review and accommodations approval.

Information on housing costs is available on our tuition and fees webpage.

Gender Inclusive Housing

Important to Note:

  • Individual microwaves, heating devices, air fryers, and cooking devices are prohibited in our residence halls. Thaddeus Stevens provides microwaves in common areas for student use.
  • Phones are located at the entrance of each residence hall and connect straight to the College’s security team.

Off-Campus Housing

There is no on-campus residency requirement for our students. Housing away from the campus is all privately owned and is separate and independent of the College. The College does not own, operate, or supervise these properties. Students are responsible for securing their own off-campus housing and then communicating your local address to the College.
