Student Life’s primary responsibility is to provide a safe and comfortable living environment for all residential students. Our programs are specifically designed to provide a supportive environment that is free of language barriers, and that provides opportunities for student growth, development, and achievement. The residential hall programs emphasize integration, collaboration, and equality in fostering opportunities and experiences in self-education and self-improvement.


The Student Life Division has three primary on-campus residential units where residents live during the academic week. The residential halls are Koob Hall for female students, Fair Hall for male students, and the Dixon House, an independent living unit.


The on-campus residential units are designed to accommodate students 3 to 21 years of age. Students reside in the dorms from Sunday to Thursday. During the school year, the dorms open Sunday at 6pm, and Monday through Thursday they open at 3pm. On Friday all students are out of the dorms by 8am. 



We are committed to providing high-quality, student-centered programs that support the student as a whole.




Students develop best in a challenging and supportive environment where academic and personal development are integral. The Student Life's programs are services based on nine dimensions of this philosophy: cultural, emotional, intellectual, life planning, physical, political, sexual, social, and spiritual.
