Residence Life

The Residence Life Office currently offers Columbia students four on-campus living options:

1. 30 East | 30 E. Balbo Ave.
2. University Center | 525 S. State St.
3. The Dwight | 642 S. Clark St.
4. The Arc | 37 W. Van Buren

Visit the Residence Life Housing Options for detailed descriptions of each location, including building amenities, floor plans, and image galleries. There are a variety of ways to get involved within your residential community. Your Resident Assistant (RA) serves as an excellent first point of contact for many of your campus questions. Residence Life hosts a number of programs and social events throughout the year, offering you an enhanced opportunity to connect to the Columbia community and meet other students in your hall. Residence Life also offers thematic living environments focused on the First Year Experience (FYE), Second Year Experience (SYE), honors housing, and gender-inclusive housing. Students can indicate on their application their choice to be placed in any one of these communities. Assignments will be made for these communities until capacity is reached.
