Residence Life

Living on campus is one of the best ways to experience college life. Some of your fondest memories will revolve around the lifelong friendships that you make at D'Youville College.

Living on campus makes it easy to:

  • Get to know other students
  • Have fun at campus events
  • Join student clubs and organizations
  • Study together and work on class projects
  • Develop interpersonal skills
  • Eat on campus with your friends
  • Walk to class and save time commuting!
