Residential Life Students eating in Garvey

Welcome from the Director of Residential Life

Welcome to the Department of Residential Life Web site.  We hope you will find the information on the various pages helpful, but there is no substitute for a campus visit.  We hope if you are thinking about attending St. Cloud State University you will plan to visit our residence halls and see them first hand.

Our staff members and campus partners work incredibly hard to provide the best services and programs for our residential students.  We strive to create a positive environment to support community development for our students, while allowing each individual to pursue his or her own personal goals.  Our work is very intentional in regard to helping our students achieve academic success and develop important interpersonal and leadership skills that will serve them for a lifetime.  

Our team is made up of highly skilled professional staff, graduate assistants, and student staff members that work closely with all of our residential students.  Whether it’s through individual counseling, service opportunities or leadership programs, our staff is the heartbeat of community. Our students rate our staff members as the most important factor to their positive experience living on campus, as tabulated in our annual satisfaction surveys.

We look forward to having you join us as a member of our residential communities.  If you do not find the information you are seeking, or if you have additional questions regarding our program, please contact myself or any member of the Residential Life team.

Best regards,
