Housing
At SNU, we believe that living on campus is important to each student's success journey and we encourage all undergraduate students to be a part of our residential community. We are certain on-campus living contributes greatly to a student’s development as national research performed at colleges and universities nationwide indicates that students who live on campus enjoy a more positive and rewarding university experience. Residence Life utilizes a creative blend of relational presence and educational community building programs in an effort to best support students, helping each one reach their full potential. If your student has been living off campus and is now interested in transitioning to on-campus housing, please have them email housing@snu.edu for more information on making the move!
