Why Live on Campus?


Living on campus offers many ways for you to develop a sense of belonging early in your college experience. Living in Applewood Village comes with a sense of community where you begin to form social connections that will last you a lifetime. Students are encouraged to get involved in their community by attending housing-offered programs, Community Council events, or voicing a concern to your Resident Advisor throughout the year.

Living in the apartment village is a great way to discover new interests, develop independence, and even learn valuable life skills like cooking, cleaning, and doing your own laundry! Applewood Village is so much more than just a roof over your head; it's a place to learn, socialize and be involved in the heart of campus life. 

Top 6 Reasons to Live on Campus 

  • Living closer to your classes means you have a better chance of going to them (and being on time!).

  • Free parking right outside (or near) your front door.

  • Built-in community and opportunities to meet your neighbors while enjoying free food and learning something new.

  • Access to trained peer Resident Advisors and professional staff to help mediate conflicts and aid in the transition to college life.

  • Many of our residents come from small communities and you'll find that same sense of safety and neighborly feel in the village.

  • Affordable, inclusive housing with the ability to know your living costs up front.
