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. 

In order for undergraduate students at Southern Nazarene University to succeed academically, it is critical that they have ongoing access to a laptop computer. For the majority of classes, professors will ask students to use their computers during class on a daily basis. Additionally, students will be assigned homework, projects, or papers which require the use of a computer. To learn more about the options available to secure your student a laptop computer (along with the minimum specifications), click here.
