Our campus housing is more than a place to sleep. It's a vibrant learning community where students from many cultures share life together. As a resident you will make friends who last forever and be part of many meaningful activities and programs. Actively experiencing a holistic community through everyday living and learning, intentional programming, cross-cultural communication, conflict resolution, and restorative practices, students become thoughtful and responsible members of the relational community who act with integrity and respect. We have established various support networks to make our students feel safe and taken care of. Dormitory, or dorm, is the popular term used by students to refer to a residence hall. The term comes from the word dormant, meaning to sleep. Because these are places where students live, study, learn, and sleep, this is why cal them residence halls.
