The Office of Residence Life believes we are welcoming our students home — even if it’s their first year at Shenandoah.
Each year, more than 1,000 Shenandoah students choose to live in one of the university’s 11 residence halls. Residence halls are divided by class rank. It is our priority that students live in a residential communities populated by their peers. Each residence hall is unique in both style and characteristics. Professional Area Coordinators (ACs) and student staff Resident Assistants (RAs) live in every hall and are there to provide an amazing, caring system of support for all residential students.
Living on campus is one of the most dynamic aspects of the college experience. Living on campus means quickly getting to classes and activities, meeting lots of people and being available for everything campus has to offer. Research consistently shows that students who live on campus have better graduation rates, higher GPAs and report a greater satisfaction with their collegiate experience.
Shenandoah students are required to maintain a full-time course load to live on campus.
