Elon University is one of the premier residential campuses focused on living, learning and personal development. By joining this community, you will enhance your academic achievements and campus connections. We aim to integrate the academic, residential and social experience of students, reconnecting living on campus with the core values and functions of the university.

By living on campus you are closer to your classes, the library, computer labs and other facilities. You are more involved in student organizations and often have higher GPAs.

Elon’s residential campus includes eight different neighborhoods. Each neighborhood offers a unique experience, with a cluster of residences and common spaces that form intimate communities of students connected by a common set of themes and shared interactions. Each neighborhood is led by a leadership team of faculty, staff, and student peer mentors. Each community is governed by a neighborhood association made up of student resident representatives and faculty and staff from across the university.
