Living on campus is a great opportunity. More than just a convenience, it's an important part of social and academic growth.
Research has shown that students who live on campus do better academically due to easy access to campus academic support resources.
In addition, living in close proximity to other students who are taking the same classes helps to develop social networks where it is easy to collaborate and organize study groups.
