Living on Campus

student living in Marguerite Hall

Living on campus is the best way to experience college life — create great memories, make lifelong friends, and live steps away from the main campus.



Benefits to living on campus

National statistics show that students who live in residence halls tend to perform better academically and are more engaged on campus. While living on campus students are easily able to:

  • Build meaningful relationships with other students
  • Easily attend 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!

Resident Advisor Support

Resident Advisors (RA) are student leaders who live with their fellow students in the residence halls who are responsible for the management and assistance of residents within a specific section or floor.

RAs serve as the initial contact person for the students on issues such as: roommate conflicts, maintenance concerns, general questions about the campus, and issues that may arise within a Residence Hall community. They implement social and educational programs within the halls, build a community, and assist with enforcing the College’s Code of Conduct.

RAs are a great resource, as they were starting their journey at D’Youville – just like you are — not too long ago!
