Housing and Residence Life

One of the most challenging and growth-oriented experiences available to students is residential living. The University strives to provide a co-curricular environment that both supports and challenges students to reach their full potential. Understanding, mutual respect and openness to diversity foster the development of a positive community.

In order to attain this goal, professional, graduate and undergraduate staffs in the Department of Housing and Residence Life are creating living and learning environments within University residence halls, suites, apartments and houses. A student elected governance board or council represents residential student opinions and assists the residence life staff in providing programmatic initiatives for each on-campus living area.

All first- and second-year students are required to live in UD housing unless they are married, are twenty-one years of age or older, or are local residents living with their legal guardian at their permanent residence within 40 miles of the University of Dayton campus. Junior and senior students have the opportunity to live in UD apartments and houses or to choose to live in non-University housing.

Upon official acceptance to the University of Dayton, the Office of Enrollment Management provides students with information and instructions for securing residential living accommodations.
