To fully experience university life, nothing equals living on campus where you are part of a tight-knit community, make life long friends, and enjoy the convenience of living right in the heart of the campus.

Living on campus is more than just a place to stay. It’s an opportunity to interact with diverse individuals, hang-out and talk about lectures and intriguing topics, form study groups, and most importantly, learn more about you and your values.  It's an opportunity for you to establish your independence and responsibility to the greater community.
