Top 8 Reasons to Live on Campus

8. Lifelong friendships

Not only is it easier to meet people when they live right down the hall from you—you’re also likely to develop friendships that last a lifetime.  

7. Security

Campus Safety patrols campus 24/7, every day of the year. Residence halls are locked, and students have security escort alarms. Surveillance cameras and courtesy phones cover the well-lit campus.

6. Good food, no cooking

Our dining halls range from all-you-can-eat to quick snacks, with menus from gourmet pizza to vegetarian cuisine.

5. Better grades

Yep, studies show that students who live on campus have higher GPAs, are more likely to graduate, and are more satisfied with their college experience. Sounds like a no-brainer. (American Council on Education.

4. It’s all included

Don’t worry about monthly bills for water, electric, cable, internet, food, or laundry. At Nazareth, they’re all part of the package.

3. Get involved

Join student groups, attend athletic events, savor concerts or special lectures. Experience everything the University has to offer … you have the rest of your life to live off campus.

2. The tunnels

The tunnels, baby! When wintry weather arrives, our tunnels let you avoid the snow. Plus, you can wear flip-flops and shorts year round.

1. When you live at college, you live the college life. When you don’t, you don’t.
