Living on campus provides students with all the benefits of our living learning community. Students will meet new people and create long-lasting friendships. Living on campus gives students the opportunity to have access to faculty and academic advisors, the library, study rooms, computer labs, catering services, the health center, the recreational center facilities, and join student organizations. It enhances the interaction with professors outside the classroom as well as the benefit of enjoying Residence Hall programs.
Residence Life offers a safe, diverse and well-maintained environment that complements and supports the academic mission of the University. We create a dynamic living-learning experience that promotes and inspires people to become empowered members of the community.
Living on campus is an important part of the university experience. Research suggests that students who live on campus get better grades, participate more in campus activities and are less likely to drop out of college.
These somewhat surprising statements have been documented in several independent studies done by professional educators in recent years. We offer a residence system with a solid academic and social environment. Each residence offers facilities to satisfy the daily needs of our students.
We have four university residences, each one with a capacity for 250 students for a total of one thousand residents. Each room is furnished with two twin-size beds, two desks, two chairs, two dressers, wide closets and a bathroom. Students can rearrange the furniture in their rooms to give them a personal style and to have more open space in the room.
Each hall offers a main lobby featured with a large screen television, a vending machine, and recreational games to play tennis and foosball. Residents have access to comfortable lounges, a central kitchen space with microwaves, water dispensers, study rooms and a laundry room.
Residence halls are conveniently located next to the swimming pool, basketball and tennis courts, tracks and fields. If students are craving a BBQ or cookout, they can do so with their friends on the outdoor grills, located between Scarlet and Howl halls.
The three occupied halls host the students as follows: first-year female students live in Scarlet Hall, first-year male students live in Howl Hall, and upper-class students live in the Red Wolves Hall.
Howl Hall is home to 250 male first year students. This suite-style building It is furnished with two single beds, two desks, two chairs, two closets and a bathroom. Students can rearrange the furniture in their rooms to give them a personal style. Individual beds can be placed in different ways to allow students place them in a traditional way or reorganize them to have more space in the room. Howl Hall offers a room with microwave and community water dispensers, a spacious lobby, different study rooms and a laundry room.
