Welcome to Residence Life - Your "Home Away From Home"
More and more undergraduate and graduate/law students are discovering the benefits of on-campus living. As a campus resident, our students forge lifelong friendships, get to know students from other states and countries, and gain valuable leadership and team-building experience. Living on campus means our students are close to classes, the library, computer labs, the Student Center, recreational facilities, and the hundreds of activities, sporting events, and educational, social, and cultural programs that take place on campus throughout the academic year.
Check-Out Information can be found on our Check In/Check Out page under Housing Selection & Assignments.
Even if your home is close to Hofstra’s campus, living on campus may be the perfect choice for you. Students living on campus have an opportunity to learn to live independently while having the support of resident assistants (RAs) who live on their floor, sponsor programs, provide informal counseling, and oversee community life in the residence halls. Students living on campus have the added advantage of developing time management skills and communication and interpersonal skills as they learn to live with fellow residents. Our halls are staffed 24 hours a day by resident security representatives and have full-time live-in professional staff available to respond to student issues and concerns.
