Residence Halls

Living on campus increases the chance that new students will achieve academic and personal success. Several studies on the effects of residence hall living have been conducted throughout the United States which demonstrate the importance of living on campus. A summary of this research (Pascarella and Terenzini, 2005) points toward the following positive effects of living in the residence halls during one’s college years:

  • Enhanced effort and involvement in academic, social, and extracurricular activities
  • Greater personal growth and development
  • Increased openness to diversity
  • More involvement with other students, faculty, and the institution as a whole
  • Increased satisfaction with the college experience
  • Increased likelihood to persist in college and graduate
