Serving the student body, the University, and the Community

The Office of Residential Life manages the University’s off-campus housing program, serving the needs of students, faculty/staff, and alumni. Through programming and outreach initiatives we educate and assist students on issues related to rental policies, roommate and landlord concerns, rights and responsibilities, as well as how to be good community members. We work closely with neighbors, landlords, city officials, and various University offices to best serve the needs of our students and community.
