Services

Student services

The Office of the Dean of Students creates a culture of caring for students, their families, faculty, and staff by providing exemplary programs and services designed to enhance students' academic and personal success.

Housing services

University Housing provides the best possible housing at a reasonable cost to residents, while at the same time providing more than just the basic physical needs of the apartments, houses, and residence hall rooms.

Our purpose for having residence halls is not simply to provide residents a place to sleep.  We are striving to create an environment where emotional, social, cultural, academic and recreational growth and development may be enhanced.  Through residence hall programs and activities, this student development concept can be realized.
