Great friends. Students tell us that it's easy to make friends at the Village than if they were living off campus. You will be part of the campus community and have the opportunity to make new friends. When you arrive, you might not know anyone else, but one of the benefits of living in student housing means you’ll have a roommate and or suitemates. Your roommate (and everyone else in your apartment) will also be adjusting to living away from home for the first time. This means you'll have someone to share that experience with. Students often form close friendships with their roommates and the other people at the Village.
Better grades. According to the American Council on Education, students who live on campus are more satisfied with their college experience and earn higher GPAs. Being able to get to and from classes more quickly means students living on campus can also devote more time to their coursework. Students who live on campus have easy access to tutors, libraries and the student union at almost any time of day. When there is a break between classes, students can go back to their apartments and have a quiet place to study.
