Our Residence Life staff is very committed to your success. We provide staffing in the residence halls which includes 44 Resident

Incoming students will be notified when they can complete the Roommate Questionnaire in conjunction with summer orientation information. Students are housed in order of when their tuition deposit is received. If you already have someone in mind to live with, you can note it on the form. As long as both of you list each other, we will house you together. If you do not have a roommate in mind, don’t worry! Our office uses the answers on the Roommate Questionnaire to place you with the best possible match for your roommate. Students attending Summer Orientation and Academic Registration (SOAR) will receive their housing assignment and roommate contact information at SOAR.
Returning students are notified by the Office of Residence Life in late March/early April when the Online Room Draw process begins and housing assignments for the next academic year are made at that time.
While designated private rooms are mostly only available to junior and senior students only, students can mark their request for a single room on the Roommate Questionnaire. We keep a wait list for these requests and will notify the students if an opening occurs. Students and parents should note that single/ private rooms are charged an additional amount. We do recognize that students may have a medical need for a single room, and can make accommodations as space allows. If your son or daughter needs an accommodation for housing, please contact the Office of Residence Life at 814-472-3029 for further information.
We put together a packing list to help you get ready for life on campus. If you forget anything, we provide transportation to Walmart and other shopping areas on weekends.
As with everything we do, our residence hall programs are very intentional based off of needs assessments performed each semester. Every month, in every residence hall, you will have a program center around each of the topics: F-Faith, L-Leadership,A-Academics, S-Service and H-Health.
