Residence Hall Community
The residence hall is a community in which students are the main ingredient. We believe a residence hall is more than a place to relax between classes. Ideally, it is a vibrant and active community, the center of student life. The residence life staff encourages you to develop an awareness of the many opportunities that this special living arrangement presents daily, and challenges you to utilize this setting to increase strength in citizenship and leadership.
To make a community function, it is very important to ensure that the rights of individuals are respected. We urge each resident to act responsibly toward the rest of the community as well as to himself or herself. It is important that each person's actions contribute to the development of a strong, balanced community within the residence halls.

Welcome to Residence Hall Living

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, 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 to make your living experience both educational and enjoyable.


Your first year in college can be both an exciting and adventurous time in your life.  Outside of the classroom, you will have the opportunity to participate in numerous activities and meet many new people.  The people you meet and the experiences you share will probably become some of the most previous memories of your college career. 

One excellent way to take advantage of these opportunities is to live in a residence hall. Research demonstrates that living in the residence halls provides students with a unique experience that fosters success during college years.  These students are more likely to graduate from college and generally feel more “connected.”  After fulfilling their academic commitments, resident students have the opportunity to gather in their buildings and discuss many of the activities of the day with one another.  Resident Assistants (RA’s) facilitate a comprehensive range of activities to enhance community objectives and encourage interactions among residents which support intellectual, emotional, physical, and cultural growth.

All unmarried students (traditional age undergraduates) who have not received prior permission to commute are required to reside on campus in the University’s residence halls as long as space is available. Permission to commute is granted only to those students who will reside with their parent(s) or legal guardian(s) in their parents’ primary place of residence within a reasonable driving distance (45 minutes or less according to MapQuest or Google Maps) from Concord University. Applications for a housing exception should be obtained from, and must be submitted to, the Office of Housing and Residence Life. Applications will be reviewed by the Director of Residence Life and/or a designated committee that will evaluate the evidence of exemption criteria.

NOTE: Students should never sign a lease for an off-campus dwelling until they have been approved to live off-campus. Signing a lease with another entity is not grounds for exception approval. Any student denied an off-campus exception will be charged room and board, regardless of having signed a lease for an off-campus dwelling.
