Security to help you feel at home

Because your safety and peace of mind are important to us, the residence has numerous security features including secure building access, 24-hour on-site staff, security cameras, and after-hours security personnel.



Build life-long friendships as you live, study and hang out with students from different places and programs. From study groups to residence-wide social events to late-night conversations with roommates, residence is a bonding experience that’s not to be missed.

92.5% of our residence students say that living on campus has helped them connect with other students and make friends.
