Academic Initiatives in University Residence Halls

A Residence Hall section meets for class

At University Housing, academics are a priority, and it is important to us that we provide you with the tools for success. You'll find a variety of academic initiatives in your residence hall, including class sections reserved exclusively for residents of your hall, academic advising, tutoring, technology, and workshops.

Quick Tips on How to Make the Grade

Live in University Residence Halls

Students who live on campus their first year perform better academically and are more likely to graduate in four years. Live on campus for a second year or beyond, and your odds get even better.

Join a Learning Community

Residents in our ten residential learning communities benefit from additional resources and programming around a specific focus, to elevate your experience.

Work in University Housing

Students who work part-time during the school year actually do better academically than those who chose not to work. University Housing employs over 2,000 students with flexible, convenient jobs that give you structure, skills, new connections, and the best wages on campus.

Take Advantage of Tutoring and Advising

Our residence halls offer free tutoring in our buildings for a variety of popular courses. We also provide convenient on-site academic advising in several residence halls through the Cross-College Advising Service (CCAS).

Take Classes in Your Hall

Our residence halls have on-site classrooms where you can take sections of popular classes alongside your neighbors without even leaving your building.

Use Study Spaces in Your Hall

Our halls offer quiet study spaces and convenient computer labs so you can focus on your homework.
