Office of Residence Life


The Office of Residence Life welcomes you to Southwestern University. We are residential campus, which means our on-campus living program is an integral part of the total student experience. We believe, and research has shown, that students who live on campus enjoy greater academic success and are more likely to achieve in other areas such as teamwork, problem-solving, and leadership.

We offer a variety of residential facilities and living options including residence halls and spacious apartments. Within each of these options, you also have the choice of either single-gender and co-ed residence configurations.


Spring 2022 Information 


All first-year residence halls (Clark, Mabee, Brown-Cody, and Ruter), fraternity houses (KA and Pike), and Herman Brown and Moody-Shearn halls will reopen Friday, January 7, 2022 at 10 am.


If you are a new student, returning to campus from studying abroad, or hoping to move back on campus, please complete the Spring 2022 Housing Request form.
