Living on campus is an important part of your college experience. Our students are housed by class to build a sense of community among classmates. By living on campus, you’ll gain greater independence, strengthen your communication skills, and learn how to live within a community.

Here are some additional benefits of living in one of Meredith’s historic residence halls.

Convenience

You’ll be closer to your classes, avoid issues with traffic, and be near campus resources such as the learning center, dining hall, new fitness center, and athletic events.

Campus involvement

Being close to the action makes it easier to get involved – and research shows that it’s key to making friends and finding your place at college.

Enrichment

 Every student who lives on campus is a member of the Residence Hall Association (RHA). Residence Life staff offer interesting and entertaining programs, speakers, and events to enhance the classroom experience. Each year, students involved with RHA have the opportunity to attend a statewide conference.

Inclusive cost

Room and board fees cover room rent, utilities, laundry machine use, a meal plan, and access to the campus health center.

Connect with classmates (outside of class)

Learn about different personalities and cultural backgrounds. Employers have come to expect global and intercultural fluency – and getting together for studying or class projects is easier.

Safety and security

Campus security and a residence director are on duty at all times. These resources can be accessed for anything from a general question to bathroom lockout or crisis.

Quiet hours

From 10 p.m. – 10 a.m. weekdays, quiet hours provide a more conducive environment for studying and sleeping.

Consistency

Many off-campus apartment complexes change ownership or management, which can cause headaches for residents. On campus, Meredith College is the landlord.

“It is so convenient to be close to everything! Living on campus has allowed me to become much more independent and to form intimate relationships with my classmates. My family is within commuting distance, but I know that I would not get the fullness of the experience that I have had at Meredith if I lived at home.”

“I enjoy living within a walking distance to all of my classes and the safe atmosphere it entails. Living on campus has made my experience the best because it allows me to be active in so many ways. I am always surrounded by friends and feel like I always know what’s going on around campus.”

“I have lived on campus all four years. It helps a lot as an athlete. We have late nights when we come home at 1 or 2 in the morning. Luckily for me my "commute” home is really short and quick. I think living on campus has also given me an opportunity to get to know my class, as well as the younger classes, through the face-to-face interaction. It has allowed me to fall in love with the school more, especially walking back to the Oaks after Cornhuskin’. That's always fun because we all end up going back around the same time and it's like extra bonding.”
