Residence Life

We are glad to have this opportunity to welcome our new students to Concord University's residence hall community and to help prepare you for life in a residence hall. One meaningful part of a University education is the learning that comes from living with others. A good deal of adjustment occurs in the transition from high school to college and from home life to residence hall life, and sometimes even from freshman to sophomore year. Concord's Residence Life Program is designed to help you make personal, social and academic adjustments in as healthy a way as possible, and to make your living experience both educational and enjoyable.
