Substance-Free Communities for Returning Students

The Office of Residence Life & Housing strives to support the healthy and holistic development of all students. Open to Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors, the Substance-Free Community offers a space for those students who genuinely desire to live in an environment where all residents and their guests agree to keep the area free of all alcohol, drugs, and tobacco products. Residents agree to create an environment in which they are respectful of one another and, as a result, foster a living atmosphere that is respectful of healthy lifestyles. Members of the community also have the opportunity to work with their resident assistants to plan activities and outings that promote a positive community.

Interested in this community? Select "Yes" when prompted within the housing application to join the Substance-Free Community.

All applicants will need to sign the substance free housing agreement. Please note, all substance-free housing is in Seton Court and depending on your roommate group size other students may be added to your group to fill an apartment.
