Housing and Residence Life

Living on campus is more than just your college setting — it marks the beginning of the next phase of your journey. And at Bloomsburg, you’ll live in comfort and flourish as a member of the Husky Family.

The heartbeat of the Husky Nation? You’ll find it right here in our on-campus communities. From the excitement of move-in day for a new freshman to the grit and determination of a senior excited to finish their degree and start a successful career, you’ll feel it everywhere. That’s why we believe living on campus is an important and exciting part of the college experience and why our residential communities are built to encourage academic success, personal growth, inclusivity, and of course fun. From the day you move in you’ll find yourself immersed in the Husky Life and all it has to offer.

At Bloomsburg, our communities offer diverse, convenient, safe and supportive environments to live and learn as well as providing an unmatched opportunity for you to get involved, stay active and achieve personal growth – studies show you may even do better academically too. 

Your college experience will be more successful the more you actively participate in our campus community and with hundreds of social, recreational and educational programs and events right outside your door, you’ll find by living on campus there’s no better way to meet new people, share experiences and create memories that will last a lifetime.

Residency Requirement

All new full-time undergraduate freshmen are required to live on campus for their first four semesters (not including summer and winter sessions) unless they are over 21 years of age before the first day of the fall semester or are commuting from the home of their parent(s) or legal guardian(s) within a 50-mile radius of campus. A full-time student is enrolled for 12 or more credit hours per semester. Falling below 12 credits is not grounds for breaking your housing agreement.

As part of the 2-year residency requirement, you will complete a new housing agreement for the following year and will have the opportunity to select your specific housing location during the housing selection process.

Why a 2-year requirement? With the success of our students at the forefront of this decision, the plan is rooted in data relating to student success, access to support services, and offers a transition and more healthy pathway toward life after college.
