Residence Life

Welcome home.

Living on Campus

Join an empowering, supportive, and fun community

A community is more than a place to live.

At SAU, it encompasses everyone who surrounds and challenges us, sparks laughter, and offers unyielding support. It encompasses a willingness to jump into new situations, giving respect, and feeling respected.

While living at SAU, you'll experience community during late-night study sessions and in deep conversations with friends and suitemates; as you meet classmates for a cup of coffee or for lunch in Cosgrove; as you jump into a sand volleyball game outside Franklin Hall; or as you join (or lead) a floor activity.

Our goal is to foster a safe, supportive, and empowering community that will challenge and support you to grow and develop holistically. Not only will you live in the best college housing in the Midwest, but you can also join in the recreational, educational, spiritual, and cultural programs that define and grow our community.
