Live and Dine in Comfort Every Day

Our comfortable, spacious suites, apartments, and dining halls feature modern amenities, healthy choices, and the conveniences of a home away from home—plus, you’ll get to class fast. You can walk to all our classrooms in ten minutes or less.

Living on campus allows me to be more involved within the school, rather than just simply being a student of the school. I am able to attend a lot of events on campus, and also fortunate enough to embrace Newark.
