Housing

Anderson University is home to 21 different on-campus residence halls that feature a wide variety of campus-living options, ranging from traditional halls to apartment-style suites. Each residence hall is designed to foster a sense of community and well-being, as well as several good options for studying. Nearly half of the residence halls have been constructed in the past six years and feature the most modern living arrangements available. Each residence hall is staffed by a student Resident Advisor on each floor as well as a full-time adult live-in professional in each living area. Students who carry an academic load of at least 12 hours (full-time) enjoy the excitement, community and support that comes with on-campus living.
