Live Where You Can Learn Too
The Office of Housing & Residence Life has developed Communities designed to further build skills on academic success, personal growth and over-all wellness. The Communities are groups of students living together in a community which is focused on common goals, a specific theme, or set of skills. Students interested in living in one of these communities can apply in the Office of Housing & Residence Life.
- Academic Leadership Community: Geared towards returning students, this community focuses on enhancing academic success and developing leadership skills. To be a member of this community, students must maintain at least a cumulative GPA of a 3.0, be a returning resident student (must have lived on campus for at least one semester) and have a good student conduct record. This community is housed in the apartments.
- Academic Focus Community: New for Fall 2020, this community will be open to new and returning students. This community is placed in an area of the building where 24/7 Quiet Hours are enforced, allowing students the opportunity to fully focus on their academics and classwork. This community will also have programming centered around building academic skills and offer additional support for academic success. This community will be housed in the 2400’s wing of the Residence Hall Commons.
- Health & Wellness Community: New for Fall 2020, this community will be open to new and returning students. This community will be a SUBSTANCE-FREE (no alcohol, no drugs, no smoking) community and will focus on personal health and wellness. This community will be housed in the 1400’s wing of the Residence Hall Commons.
- Start a New Community: The Office of Housing & Residence Life is open to creating new communities in the residence hall. If you have an idea for a community, please speak to a member of the Housing & Residence Life Staff about your idea and the process of creating a new community.
