It turns out that a campus nestled into the side of a hill, between the Susquehanna River and the bright blue sky, is a pretty great place to start your climb.

The mission of Student Development and Campus Life at Bloomsburg University is to facilitate a university experience integral to student success. As educators, our professionals intentionally develop an environment contributing to a student’s learning and leadership, as well as personal and professional development.

Fostering and Developing a Strong Sense of Community

Student Development and Campus Life cultivates an environment that encourages students to view themselves as a part of a larger world. Our community values engagement, leadership, diversity, inclusivity, civility, wellness, self-reliance and compassion.

Offices within the Department of Student Development and Campus Life

It’s not just simply college life. Here it’s Husky Life! Downtown to the top of the hill. Lower campus to upper campus. From your first year to your last, your climb to the top - filled with memorable experiences and lasting friendships - begins here. 

With clubs and organizations ranging from community service to the arts to business to entertainment, you’ll have endless opportunities to develop your leadership skills, flex your creativity, and grow both professionally and personally. 

Offices in Student Involvement

No matter where you come from — big city or small town — you’ll find people at BU who live and see life the way you do. People ready to dig in, create opportunities, and achieve more. That’s what we call the Husky Spirit. 

The Office of the Dean of Students staff support our University community by protecting and promoting the educational mission and guaranteeing orderly and effective operation. To accomplish these goals, the University must require certain standards of conduct, both on and off campus, which are then expressed through the Student Code of Conduct and Judicial Process. In addition, Bloomsburg University students aspire to, follow and promote integrity, community, social justice, respect, and responsibility.

Living in the Town of Bloomsburg can be very rewarding and enjoyable. However, occurrences like getting utilities hooked up, paying bills and dealing with landlords and neighbors can be a great source of stress.
