Move On In

College can be one of the best experiences of your life and much of the excitement comes from that first experience living away from home. First and second-year students live in university residence halls where you’ll discover all the advantages of living on campus. You’ll be close to classes, minutes away from dining options and in a safe, supportive environment.

Make Yourself at Home

Support systems, social opportunities, modern amenities. It’s all part of the experience of living on campus!
