Guide to Group Living

Group of students

The Residential Life Guide to Group Living is a reference for our students and staff to the policies, resources, and general information about living in Residential Life. Although our policies are also listed in the terms of agreement on the contract, this is an easily searchable summary of those policies. If you have questions about the Guide, please talk with your RA or Residential Life Coordinator.
