Residence Life

At Lewis University, residence halls are more than a place to sleep and eat. They are extensions of the classroom; they are places where students learn how to appreciate diversity by living and working with people different from themselves. Students in residence learn decision-making skills, they develop independence, they gain self-confidence, and they learn to accept responsibility. The Residence Life staff consists of full-time professionals, graduate and undergraduate students, all of whom reside on campus. Residence Life staff is licensed to provide support to students living on campus. Student involvement and community decision making are key ingredients in the Residence Life program. Each residence hall has a Residence Hall Association representative who lives in that facility. These students organize activities throughout the year and provide input to the Residence Life staff on a variety of topics, including maintenance, technology, and programming.
