North Residence Hall

Living on campus allows residents to grow, form lifelong friendships and explore new passions while creating their own unique living and learning experience. Living on campus is a significant aspect of the educational experience, and studies show that students who live on campus experience a greater likelihood of academic and personal success.

First- and second-year students reside in the 220-bed North Residence Hall. North Residence Hall is located on the fifth through seventh floors of the Recreation and Student Center (RAS) and is designed to foster balance between social activities and students’ studies.

RAS Features

On the first floor, you will find a hub of activity where students enjoy the full-service dining facility, student organizations set up booths in the lobby, and fans cheer on the Eutectics in the competition gymnasium.

Residents also have plenty of places to relax, hang with friends or stay active.

The student lounge located on the third floor is home to ping-pong and pool tables, a video game lounge and TV area. Located across from the student lounge, the Student Fitness Center provides state-of-the-art equipment, a two-lane, 200-meter indoor track, recreational gymnasium and a group exercise room.

The University requires that all first-year, sophomore and junior students live on campus and enter into a residency agreement each academic year when enrolled at the University. For specific requirements regarding on-campus housing, review the Academic Catalog.
