Bookmark and Share Students in Dorm RoomResidential Life offers you more than just a place where you study and sleep. Your Residence Hall is a living and learning community designed to help you grow in all aspects of your life at one of the top liberal arts schools. Our goal is to be an extension of the Sacred Heart University classrooms by being the place where you continue conversations from class, work on group projects, or spend time studying by yourself.
Apart from roommates and neighbors, some of the first people you will meet will be the hall staff. Each Residence Hall has a Residence Hall Director (RHD) and a staff of undergraduate Resident Success Assistants (RSA). These people are selected from a group of highly-motivated individuals based upon their leadership abilities. There is a Resident Success Assistant on duty in each residence hall every Sunday through Wednesday from 8:00 PM until 1:00 AM, Thursday through Saturday from 8:00 PM until 2:00 AM, and remains on call until 8:00 AM the next morning. The RHD is available during posted office hours and to respond to emergencies at any time.
Sacred Heart University is accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE), one of the six regional associations in the United States that accredits schools and colleges.
