Welcome Home to Your Charger Community

The residence halls at the University of New Haven are home to your college family and are the living arrangement that offers the most convenience. Simply put: Living in our residence halls is your best option because you are located near everything that is important to you.

Your Home Away From Home

Living in one of our residence halls enables you to participate in a well-rounded educational experience that caters to your personal and professional development.

When you live in a University of New Haven residence hall, you live and learn near the people and places that are integral to your college experience, and you’ll be part of a supportive, engaged community. Through our unique Living-Learning Communities, you can even live with people who have the same major as you.

Benefits of Living on Campus

Better grades and higher level of engagement:

Research shows that those who live in our residence halls earn better grades and are more likely to pursue an advanced degree. On-campus students also develop deeper connections with faculty and their fellow students, experience a higher level of engagement, and, ultimately, have a more successful and satisfying college career.

Convenience and access to resources:

Right outside of your residence hall, you have easy access to your professors and a wealth of campus resources, including the Peterson Library and the Beckerman Recreation Center, which is open nearly 18 hours a day.

It's easier to get involved:

By living on campus, you are more plugged in, and there is always something to do. The Office of Residential Life and the Center for Student Engagement, Leadership, and Orientation annually organize thousands of social, cultural, and academic programs as well as a wide variety of leadership opportunities for students.

A vibrant campus community:

Students who live on campus have the opportunity to immerse themselves in a culturally diverse and lively campus life. These experiences in diversity will benefit you in any endeavor you pursue in the future.

You'll make friends for life:

Some of your most transformational experiences will take place outside of the classroom. You’ll forge lifelong relationships and build people skills that will serve you well throughout your career and in your personal life.
