The Office of Residence Life provides students with many opportunities for personal, social and spiritual growth. We offer a clean and healthy living environment that supports students in achieving their personal goals and academic success.

A significant part of our University mission is to prepare students for responsible lives by imparting and expanding knowledge, developing skills, and cultivating enduring values. 

Living within our community, learning to share space and be considerate of others is part of the living and learning environment at Salve Regina University.

Within this context, our student leaders and professional staff implement enjoyable, creative and educational programs that foster positive student connections.
