Living on campus is one of the highlights of the ONU experience. Sharing and learning together, hanging out and having fun together — these are how close friendships and lifelong memories are formed.
At Olivet, ours is a close-knit, Christian living community, where students are able to grow socially, academically and spiritually together. Resident directors and resident assistants live within our student residence halls, providing guidance and support, ensuring a positive living experience for every student.
We are so convinced of the merits of campus-living that we maintain a residential campus policy that requires students 22 years or younger to live on campus unless the student is a commuter. We believe campus living has a vital, life-changing impact, and we want it to become a part of every student's ONU experience.
When you're choosing a college, it’s not just majors, classes and activities that will determine the quality of your educational experience. Quality of life is also a major factor for how you will learn and grow during the undergrad experience. Along with dining (from coffee shops to fresh and fast Mexican!) and recreational facilities (from a climbing wall to a lap pool!), residential life is one of the highlights of the Olivet experience.
