Office of Residence Life

We designed our Residence Life program to contribute to the development of the residential students by creating a positive living and learning environment. We are continually creating and enhancing programs directed towards educating the student by offering supportive services and dynamic programming opportunities.

Our Director of Residence Life, Area Coordinator and Graduate Assistants along with Resident Assistants (student staff) will offer assistance in the transition to campus to form friendships with other floor members and encourage participation in floor/campus programs. Our residence halls are just one element of the student life experience, but a key element that we invite you to explore!  

The residence halls are located in three (3) residential areas: Kirby, Champion/McHugh, and Ignatius. Each area is supervised by a Graduate Assistant  and each residence hall floor has at least 2  Resident Assistants assigned to assist students on that floor. Graduate student housing is offered as space and availability permit in the residence halls.  

The housing application process and room selection process are administered through a web-based service (eRezLife).  To access this site as a new student or current student, visit
