Housing & Residence Life

Residence Life This Fall

What are the benefits of living on one of MGA's residential campuses?

Compared to students who live at home with parents or who commute from other locations, residential students demonstrate:

  • A higher level of interaction with their faculty members (Kuh, Gonyea, and Palmer 2001)w
  • A higher level of involvement in co-curricular activities including clubs, service projects, internships, and study abroad (Kuh, Gonyea, and Palmer 2001).
  • An increased sense of belonging and affiliation with the University (O’Toole, Peterson and Wetzel, 1999 ; Newbold et al., 2011)
  • Greater access to counselors, advisers, peers, and other resources designed to support student’s academic success (Newbold, Mehta, Forbus, P. (2011)
  • More social connections, (Kuh, Gonyea, and Palmer 2001)
  • Increases in personal development (Kuh, Gonyea, and Palmer 2001)
  • More academic commitment and focus (Nonis, Philhours, and Hudson, 2006)
  • Greater academic success, i.e. higher GPAs (Nonis, Philhours, and Hudson, 2006)
