Residence Life at Aquinas College
  • students in a dorm room

Living on-campus gives students the opportunity to develop and thrive in all dimensions of life. The convenience and proximity to classrooms, food service, and events makes busy schedules easy. On-campus housing also affords students the opportunity to develop deep, meaningful relationships and learn to foster community. From a detailed roommate matching process to customized programming, the Residence Life staff supports students through times of transition and growth, whether it be learning how to do laundry or handling conflict.
