At Oglethorpe University, we strive to create a living and learning community for students that supports the academic mission of the institution. We recognize that a significant part of the collegiate experience occurs outside of the classroom. As such, Residence Life offers a variety of programs and services aimed at promoting academic success and fostering personal development and life-long learning. Our residential community is our students’ home away from home as they pursue their academic and personal interests. We welcome feedback and suggestions! Please do not hesitate to reach out should you have questions, comments, or concerns.

Residence Life Professional Staff

The Office of Residence Life is led by the Director of Residence Life and the Assistant Director of Residence Life. These professional staff members provide the vision, supervision, and management of the residence halls and supervision of the Community Advisors and Resident Assistants. They are available to assist students with any housing and campus life concerns.
