Housing Programs Support Student Learning Outcomes

On-campus housing programs play a significant role in the lives of college students, particularly during the first year. Student housing hits on key points of a student’s life beyond just a space to live – students make friends, attend organization events, and sometimes have class in these areas. Given their dynamic nature and critical role, how do on-campus housing programs support key learning outcomes? A quick look at some data shows that students report that on-campus housing enhances a wide range of learning outcomes related to personal interactions, skill development, and academic success.
