Living on Campus 

Wouldn't it be great to eliminate that time-consuming daily commute to campus? Living on campus has so many benefits — the time you'll save driving is great — but what's even better is the opportunity you'll have to connect with your fellow Hawks. Our on-campus housing was designed specifically with the needs of student residents in mind. It offers quick and easy access to classes, the library and other student resources as well as campus events and activities. Live with your friends, have your study partners nearby, and meet other students. An enriching campus living experience can add so much to your overall college career.
