Our student residence halls offer a dynamic living and learning environment. First-year students live in suite/floor arrangements with 18-30 of their peers and a resident assistant (RA)—an upperclass student trained to provide living and learning support. Suites may be all-gender or single-gender, depending on the preferences of first-year students, and men and women are not paired together as roommates in the same room.

Each floor in the Campbell/Elder residence hall consists of two connected suites of six rooms each—4 double-occupancy and 2 singles—that open into a common living area.
