Studies show that students who live on campus tend to:
- Complete more credit hours and have higher GPAs.
- Persist and graduate with greater frequency.
- Finish college in less time.
- Become more involved with the campus community.
- Show greater gains in student development, self-confidence, public speaking ability, self-esteem and self-reliance.
- Express greater satisfaction with their undergraduate experience.
Some parents/guardians feel more comfortable when their students live in university-sponsored housing for their first year of college. Living on campus can provide a perfect first step for students to live independently, but not worry about paying rent, utilities and everything else associated with renting an apartment.
There are also professional and student staff members who provide support for residents and are available around-the-clock to respond to emergency situations which may arise. The 24-hour service desk staff and Public Safety officer patrols provide additional resources to residents.
Living on campus truly offers students a chance to start developing important life skills needed for adulthood, without the stress and responsibility of being completely on their own.
