Here, we hope to show you a little more about what we have to offer while living on campus during your time at Newman. On our pages you will find:


Living on campus during college is a great idea!  You're close to all of your friends and the first to find out about campus and university-sponsored activities that happen on- and off-campus. You don't have to worry about driving in the snow or finding a parking spot if you're running late, either!

We look forward to seeing you!
