Welcome to Residential Life
The Department of Residential Life’s mission is to foster an inclusive culture of student learning, personal growth, community involvement, and programming in order to develop a socially just and safe community.
Create an inclusive community where all perspectives are shared and valued, and individuals are expected to take responsibility for actions that impact themselves and others.
Instill ethical decision-making skills that support academic and personal integrity, inclusivity, diversity, and responsibility.
Establish a residential environment that complements the academic mission and is an integral part of the educational experience.
Build and maintain partnerships across the University and the greater Burlington area to optimize the holistic development of our residential community.
Health & Wellness
Encourage all members of our residential community to engage in lifelong wellness by supporting healthy choices around mind, body, and spirit.
For 2015-16 we expect to house almost 5,500 undergraduate students on four residential campuses and at two nearby locations, the Sheraton and Quarry Hill.
In addition, ResLife's Apartments and Family Housing (AFH) offers 120 apartments for nontraditional students, graduate students, and students with families.
