University Housing provides the best possible housing at a reasonable cost to residents, while at the same time providing more than just the basic physical needs of the apartments, houses, and residence hall rooms.
The purpose for having residence halls is not simply to provide residents a place to sleep.

Through residence hall programs and activities, this student development concept can be realized.
