Welcome to the Department of Residence Life
As you will discover, Winthrop's residence life program has real advantages - it is designed with benefits that make living well and learning easier during your time here. By living on campus, students have unique opportunities to establish lifelong friendships, to participate in exciting activities and to truly feel connected to the university. The added convenience of living close to classes, dining and support services, make on-campus living at Winthrop the ideal environment to live, learn and lead.
Check Out the Residence Life Advantages:
Convenience - Living close to classes and campus resources means not having to worry about finding a parking space if you are running late for class, picking up the mail or meeting friends for lunch.
No Hidden Costs - You don't have to worry about paying monthly rent, utility, Internet and cable bills, purchasing furniture , securing maintenance services, laundry services or buying groceries. Your room and board (meal plan) are combined each semester and will not change during the academic year.
The Potential for Better Grades - The experts agree! Recent national research of college students show that those who live on campus are more satisfied with their college experience, earn higher grade point averages and are more likely to graduate than their commuting peers.
Support - Each residence hall has trained live-in staff consisting of a Resident Assistant (RA) on every floor and a full-time professional Residential Learning Coordinator (RLC) who is responsible for the building. These staff members are fully supervised by full-time professional Assistant Directors (AD) of Residence Life. These staff members work together as a team to assist you as you settle in and throughout your college life.
