Welcome to EdR Residence Life! People ask us all the time: what exactly is residence life? We like to think of residence life as a comprehensive collegiate housing program that touches on every aspect of students’ on- and off-campus experiences. At EdR, our residence life program is specifically designed to build a sense of community among residents by providing educational and social opportunities that complement those they’re provided in the classroom.  We think that our program significantly expands developmental opportunities for students because they are immersed — by design — in a communal living environment.

Our communities foster personal responsibility, social awareness and student leadership through programs and activities consistent with EdR’s values and those of our partner universities.

In other words, our community motto is “Live here. Live well.” and we mean it. At EdR, we’re able to accomplish our residence life goals through the hard work and dedication of the full-time professionals and student staff at our communities. If that sounds like you, check out more information about our staff positions below — we’re always looking for great new team members!
