The mission of the Office of Housing and Residential Education at Reinhardt University is to foster a vibrant living community dedicated to personalized attention that embraces diversity, promotes leadership, cultivates individual development, and enhances the educational experience of each resident.

Be More Likely to Achieve

Research shows that students living on campus are more likely to achieve a higher grade point average, take less time to earn their degree, and become more involved in student organizations and leadership opportunities.

 Some of these benefits of living on campus include:

  • Caring and Committed Staff
  • Fun programs and activities
  • Exciting living & learning environment
  • Weekly Prayer and praise services
  • Form life long and close friendships
  • Library and computer labs near by
  • No commuting time
  • Smoke Free and Drug Free housing facilities
  • Dry Campus (alcohol is not permitted)

Your stay on campus will be one of the most memorable and rewarding experiences of your college career. We encourage all students to consider becoming a residential student as the benefits are tremendous.

At Reinhardt, friendships develop quickly, but they are long lasting. Students, faculty and staff are close knit, and living on campus will give you the opportunity to take another step toward independence. Moving away from home helps you learn more about yourself and about others. We embrace diversity and encourage you to discover your own path in life. The time you spend in a residence hall will be a time of personal, emotional and spiritual growth. Whether you are hanging out with your roommate, studying with friends, or deciding which Waffle House to visit for a much needed study break, each day will offer you new and exciting opportunities.
