Living on Campus

So you made the decision to live on campus? Good call! You needn’t worry about utilities, high-speed internet, meals, security, parking, cable/satellite TV, and more. You’ll make friends for life. And while off-campus dwellers hunt for parking, you’ll wake up steps away from a hot breakfast and your next classroom or lab.
