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.
