Response to COVID-19
Thank you for visiting our website page. Due to reduced staffing and heavy call volume, we are unable to answer individual questions via email or phone at this time. Currently, all on-campus residence halls are closed, and card access is not available to students. If you have a special need or circumstance, please email your campus Housing office for assistance. Once the state's restrictions are lifted, details and a schedule for move out will be sent to students. We thank you for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented event.

Living on campus has many benefits. Being a resident allows you to have the ultimate college experience by living with other students who share your goals and ambitions. For our residents, independence is a major benefit to living on campus.
