Is campus housing the right decision?
We understand that you want the best possible college environment for your student. While some parents decide the best place for their son or daughter is at home or in an off-campus apartment, we truly believe that best place for your student is on campus. Residence halls provide students with a degree of independence, while still offering some supervision. Students set their own hours, make daily decisions with their roommates and hall neighbors, and have access to regular, nutritious meals. At the same time, residence hall living is regulated by policies regarding certain behaviors. Residence hall policies are designed to ensure a safe, comfortable environment for all students.
For second year or transfer students, on campus apartments offer your student a unique college atmosphere where neighbors share similar goals (such as graduating) and together form an academic community unlike any found off campus. Resident Assistants are available for campus apartment residents should they need someone to talk to about personal or academic concerns. Campus apartments also have the benefits of on-site professional staff, prompt maintenance and amenities such as a computer lab and laundry mat. They are walking distance from the library, Activity Center, student union, dining hall, and many other buildings on campus. You would be hard pressed to find comparable student support, programming, and cost value in any off campus apartment! Click here for information on off campus costs.
