Programming & Events

Programming & Events

In addition to providing students with a safe place to live, we are committed to providing residents with opportunities to meet new people and learn new skills. To that end, our Residence Life team runs regular programming and also works with campus partners to provide a wide range of engaging programs for residents.

These programs are created with resident feedback in mind and we are always looking at ways to improve our offerings. If you're looking for something specific, talk to a Residence Life Student Staff and if it's not something we are currently planning, we'll look at how we can integrate it into our programming model in the future.

Each Monday, residents are informed about our programing options through the Student Housing and Residence Life newsletter, and we also encourage all residents to follow our Instagram, Facebook and TikTok accounts where we regularly post.

Below is our program offerings for March. Follow us on Instagram for programming updates.
