Welcome to Residence Life
On behalf of the Office of Residence Life, I would like to welcome you to the Christian Brothers University. Residence Life is committed to providing a living and learning environment which will enhance the academic endeavors of our students. Additionally, the staff is committed to improving the quality of life on campus by serving as a resource to students in the residence halls and apartment complexes. A major goal for the on-campus experience is to assist students as they learn and grow in many aspects of their lives. Another goal is to provide comfortable, affordable, well-maintained and safe housing along with a varied and high quality menu in the dining centers.
We are committed to acting with integrity and dignity in our response to residents and we promote an environment that celebrates diversity and is based on the principles of good citizenship. Our program is built upon the foundation of communication; therefore, I would like to personally encourage you to build relationships with our staff so we can provide you with opportunities for the best possible experience while you are living with us.
Once again, I would like to welcome you to the Christian Brothers community. If there is any way our department can be of service to you, please do not hesitate to let us know.
