An Extraordinary Experience

Students who live on campus are closer to their classes, the library, computer labs and other facilities. Campus residents are more involved in student organizations and often have higher GPAs.

Living and Learning

Elon is working toward a goal of having 75 percent of undergraduates living on campus. A strong residential experience connects students to Elon's vibrant academic and student life programs and contributes to a more intellectual campus climate.

Residence Life Mural Competition

The Annual Residence Life Mural Competition has begun!
The Residence Life Mural Competition is an annual event in which students living on campus can paint a mural on their floor/within their community. Each mural is designed, painted, and implemented solely by Elon students.


The completed murals were judged on the following criteria—representation of Elon University, depiction of the community, overall creativity, and the quality of the finished work. In addition, this marks the 25th anniversary of the Residence Life Mural Competition; and the last year of Dr. Smith Jackson's leadership as Vice President of Student Affairs and Dean of Students, so murals which incorporate these two additional focuses will receive extra points!


Please see the Mural Competition link  for all materials you will need to be participate in this exciting opportunity!The top three Mural Competition winners will receive a monetary prize and the winning mural will be announced at the Elon Homecoming Football Game.


Thank you to all of the residents who will painted murals across our campus and within our residence hall community. Also, a Giant Phoenix Thank You to all of the faculty and staff who will help in judging these murals, and a very special thank you to Physical Plant for their support in making the Mural Competition possible.
