Residential Life & Dining Services provides a safe and enriching environment where you will live, learn, and grow. Whether you are a new or returning student, a transfer or international student, Residential Life is looking forward to working with you to make your experience on campus a successful and positive one.

The development of meaningful learning opportunities that are uniquely suited to students is central to our work. Residential Life strives to connect students to each other and foster the development of life skills. Centered on the General Education Habits of Mind (Problem Solving, Purposeful Communication, Integrative Perspective, and Self-Regulated Learning) our program will enhance your experience outside of the classroom.

Living on campus wouldn’t be complete, however, without a place to eat—but PSU Dining is more than just great food. It is a community experience centered on culinary expertise, fresh ingredients, healthy options, and a shared sense of environmental and social responsibility. Welcome home!
