Southern Nazarene University - Character Culture Christ


 At SNU, we believe that living on campus is important to your success and journey as a student and 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 indicates that students who live on campus enjoy a more positive and rewarding university experience.

They tend to be more involved, develop better study habits, have more contact with faculty and staff, and achieve higher grades. SNU is committed to enhancing your development outside of the classroom by providing a community in which you can grow and learn by interaction with other students and support from residential staff. Residence Life utilizes a creative blend of of programs and activities to help you reach your full potential.

Each of our residential living areas has a Resident director (RD), a full-time staff person, who lives and works in the building, providing support spiritually, socially and academically throughout the year. We also have a committed team of student Resident Advisors (RAs) who reside and work in the hall helping to create our strong and cohesive community.
