Housing

No matter which campus you choose -- the picture-perfect collegiate environment of the Florham Campus, in Morris County, or the faster-paced, professionally-oriented Metropolitan Campus, in Teaneck -- you'll find housing, dining and recreational options suited for every student's preferences.

Residence Life

The residence halls play a critical role in campus life. For students who live on campus, the majority of time is spent within the residence halls, and that experience contributes to the overall education and development of the student.

The residence life office supports the academic mission of the University by providing on-campus housing that emphasizes an on-campus environment that fosters the total growth of the student.

The residence life staff is responsible for the coordination of all aspects of oncampus living: room assignment, roommate negotiation, residence hall discipline and regular residence hall programming. Resident assistants are trained and assigned to help students create the best possible living environment.

Student Life

Each campus' Student Handbook, which includes rules, regulations and helpful information necessary for campus living, is provided to students at check-in and is available from the Dean of Students Offices.
