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.

Participate in the Annual Residence Life Mural Competition!

The Mural Competition is a competition in which students can propose to paint a mural within their residence hall neighborhoods. All students are welcome and invited to participate, pencil sketches are submitted to the Assistant Director of your neighborhood, and then the painting begins! Once the murals are completed, each mural is then entered into a judging across campus, and the top three winners are announced at the Homecoming Football game (prizes WILL be awarded to the winners)!

To complete a mural or for more information, please see the mural packet and the mural timeline below.
