Residence Life at Centenary


The Office of Residence Life and Housing is committed to enhancing student learning and personal growth, which includes educating and building community among residents. We strive to help our students develop their potential as individuals of integrity and tolerance. Students who participate fully in the residential program will emerge prepared to function as leaders in a multicultural society. The department seeks to accomplish these aims through:

  • planning activities and programs that educate and build community among residents,

  • promoting diversity and exposure to a breadth of ideas and experiences,

  • teaching responsibility through holding students accountable for their own behavior,

  • training and involving students in significant leadership positions, and

  • fostering a campus community that is accepting, supportive, and conducive to academic pursuits.
