Residence Life

95% students live on campus all four years

At HPU, campus life empowers students by helping them to create a strong sense of self, both in the classroom and in the residential environment. All students who are not seniors and who do not live with their parents are required to live on campus. The Office of Student Life’s door is always open to our students when there are concerns or issues that need positive resolution.
