Resident who has lived in Robertson, Kolstoe, and Snoeyenbos Halls

Living on campus all four years at VCSU has drastically improved my college experience. Whether attending class, going to activities, or meeting up with friends, I’m always traveling the shortest distance. The safety and comfort I feel in campus housing allows me to focus on my studies and better prepare for life after graduation.

Residence Life Staff

All residence halls have Residence Assistants for each floor who serve as a resource for students while they live on campus, and are supported by their Hall Director. RAs plan engaging programs and host activities for residents to participate in. ResLife staff are there to guide students and help them achieve the best living experience possible.

I take a lot of pride in making sure that our residence halls are a place where everyone feels comfortable, safe and welcome. While the residence halls are a place to study and sleep, they are also a place to make friends, have fun and create the memories that you will laugh about for the rest of your life. I love providing the backdrop for those memories.
