Students in a dorm room

Welcome to our Community!

We are pleased to welcome you to residential living at Rockford University. Residential living provides students with unlimited opportunities to live and grow during university outside of the classroom. Interacting with peers, assuming responsibility for individual and community standards, and creating a living space that is your own are all benefits of living on-campus.

Between studying, getting involved in student organizations, participating in community service and volunteering, most Rockford students are active and engaged in their community. Residential living adds to your university experience by providing you with an opportunity to do all of these things while living in an active, vibrant community with your peers.

Each Rockford University residence hall provides a community learning-living environment that is as unique as the students that live there. Here are some features common to our residence halls:
  • Internet access in every room
  • Singles, super singles, doubles, and suites
  • Convenient kitchenettes
  • Lounges
  • Opportunities to make new friends from all over the world
Mission Statement for Residence Life at Rockford University
"Residence Life at Rockford University seeks to foster a strong community living environment that is conducive to academic success. By emphasizing, through our programs and services, that learning continues outside the classroom we look to develop engaged citizens that will carry on the mission of Rockford University. Through consistency in our actions we inspire strong relationships between staff and students that are grounded in mutual support, respect and personal responsibility.
