Office of Residence Life

We designed our Residence Life program to contribute to the development of the residential student 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 Area Coordinators (full-time professional staff) and 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: Sara Tracy/Kirby, Campion/McHugh, and Ignatius. Each area is supervised by a full-time Residence Life staff member and each residence hall floor has at least one (1) student Resident Assistant assigned to assist students on that floor. Steenrod Apartments offer an apartment-style living opportunity to qualifying upper class students.  Graduate student housing is offered as space and availability permit in Steenrod Apartments.

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
