Welcome to Housing!

Your community will begin to develop from the day residences open in August. The direction your community takes depends largely upon your involvement, interaction with others and their interaction with you.


The residence environment can offer you:

  • support in achieving academic excellence
  • social maturity, self-reliance
  • an increased understanding of yourself and others

One of the best ways to help ensure the successful growth of your community is for residents to foster an atmosphere of mutual respect for each other and for their living space. Before you act, consider the impact your behavior may have upon your fellow community members.
