Top Reasons to Live on Campus
Increased Academic Success
Research of college and university students across the nation shows that students who live on campus are more satisfied with their college experience, earn better grades and are more likely to graduate than their commuting peers. (Source: The American Council on Education)
Convenience and Proximity to Services
Living on campus places everything you need right at your fingertips. No more wasted time commuting, fighting traffic, or searching for parking spots before class. You are just a short walk away from everything you need to succeed — classes, professors, study groups, the library, computer labs, activities, sporting events, the recreation center, and more!
Be Part of a Community
Living on campus allows the student to know what is going on at Blinn and be an integral part of it. The friendships you form and the memories you make during your time in housing will stay with you forever. There is a feeling of family that cannot be duplicated when living off campus.
Living on campus means more independence, but it does not mean that you are without support. From the moment you arrive on campus, the Residence Life staff is here to build community and to help you get involved. Every Residence Hall has a Residence Hall Director on call 24 hours a day for questions or support. Faculty, staff, professional counselors, and administration are available as well. In addition, Campus Police are available at all times to help you feel comfortable and safe in your surroundings.
Don’t just attend Blinn — become a Buccaneer! We have an endless array of activities within the residence halls and throughout campus to make your time at Blinn memorable and fun. This is a unique time in your life, so make the most of it by living on campus at Blinn!
