Housing Options

 
We believe that housing is more than just a place to sleep. It's where you can spread out and get comfy; where you learn, play, grow, and connect with the community around you. Which is why we offer several on-campus living spaces to fit your needs.


On-Campus Options

Not only do the RU living spaces offer you indoor activities and lounge areas, RU students who live on campus can also be found relaxing on campus hammocks, playing volleyball in the sand volleyball court, or competing in pick up games on the outdoor basketball court.

From game nights, to study sessions and engaging learning activities, to outdoor impromptu sports games, your space at RU will become your home. RU is a great place to call home.

Residence Halls

There are three residence halls on campus, each with a chapel, laundry facility, computer lab, TV lounge, study rooms, and community recreation areas with activities like foosball, ping pong tables and pool tables. All residence halls feature access-controlled entry for student safety
