Residence Life

The Mission Statement of the Office of Residence Life is to provide:
  •  Living communities which are clean, attractive, and reasonably priced, meeting current standards of comfort and care
  • Orderly and efficient administration of the Residence Life program through effective management
  • An engaging living environment and related programs which promote learning, leadership, and service in the Jesuit tradition

At Rockhurst University, a residence hall is more than just a place to live. It is a place to learn. By living and interacting with diverse types of people, you'll take your education beyond the classroom. In your community, other residents may be facing the same challenges as you with new teachers, new classes, new subjects, and new adjustments. Many of these people will become your friends and a support group in times of need. Living at Rockhurst will make you feel like part of the campus community.

Research supports the fact that living on campus increases your chances of academic success. Rockhurst University is dedicated to helping students fulfill their potential, both in and out of the classroom. Students have indicated that they are more likely to use resources available on campus when they live in the halls. By utilizing the learning center, library and career services, students increase their chance of academic success. In the end, the friends you make by living in the halls will be the friends you keep. By living in a supportive community, you'll have a network of support to help you succeed in the challenges that lay ahead.
