Residence Life and Housing
General Details


All campus housing is secure and requires a Pioneer Card for access. In addition, public safety patrols campus 24/7. Residence life staff are on duty in each area to provide support and ensure compliance with university policies. It’s easy to make new friends and become part of a community by joining in on the many social and recreational activities offered through on-campus living.

Front Desk

Each residence hall has a front desk that is staffed daily when campus housing is open. Front desk workers are available as a general reference for students that live within the residence halls. Residents of the building can check out items such as games, vacuums, DVD player, cooking equipment with their Pioneer Card. Residents who have received packages or items that are too large to fit into their mailbox will be able to pick their items up at the front desk.

Mail and Packages

Each resident will have access to a mailbox within their specific housing facility. Residents who have received packages or items that are too large to fit into their mailbox will be able to pick their items up at the front desk. See addresses to our residence halls here.

Cable TV

All residence hall rooms and suites are wired for basic cable TV service. More information can be found by logging in to and viewing Residence Life and Housing TV Instructions.
