RESIDENT LIFE

Student Housing

All Traditional Students have access to Student Housing in an on-campus residence hall or a nearby apartment complex through a corporate lease agreement maintained by Highlands College. Student Housing creates a vibrant campus environment that extends the growth and connection of the Highlands College experience far beyond their time in class.

Student housing is currently arranged through a corporate leasing agreement with nearby apartment complexes.

ON-CAMPUS

RESIDENCE HALL

Opening in January of 2023, our first on-campus residence hall provides exceptional accommodations for students in an environment designed to foster community. Each housing unit has an ensuite bathroom and is fully furnished for two students. The residence hall provides ample community spaces for recreation and dining—as well as food and drink vending and on-site laundry facilities

OFF-CAMPUS APARTMENTS

Each off-campus apartment in Student Housing accommodates two students per bedroom in two- or three-bedroom units with one or more baths per unit—as well as a living room, kitchen, and dining space. A washer and dryer are provided in each unit. Students in apartments coordinate providing their furnishings with their roommates.

ON-SITE SUPPORT

Whether in our on-campus residence hall or the off-campus apartments, on-site Resident Assistants (RAs) are available to support Student Housing participants. These student leaders are trained and chosen each semester to handle residents’ needs.
