Residence Services provides quality accommodations and programs, which enhance the student experience, support academic success and foster leadership development. The vibrant and supportive community environment in residence leads to lifelong friendships and strong ties to the university. Research shows that students living in residence maintain a higher GPA and are more apt to complete their PSE studies.
Residence buildings offer a variety of accommodation styles, including traditional dormitory (for first-year), studios, one-bedrooms, two bedrooms and four bedroom apartments, as well as two and three bedroom suite-style buildings. Housing options transition with students as they progress through their university experience. All buildings have an academic lounge where students can study or attend tutoring sessions and a recreational lounge to relax with friends.
Each building has trained staff including Community Advisors (CAs) and Residence Life Coordinators (RLCs) who are available 24-hours-a-day to provide support to students living in residence. Staff members are specifically trained in responding to personal crises, and are able to direct students to appropriate university resources, leadership development, academic learning strategies, and community building. A variety of living-learning communities are supported through our residence life programming.
