Residence Life

The residence halls are more than places to sleep. Here at Schreiner University, the residence halls create a sense of community and a place to call home.

Residence Life Mission

The residence life staff encourages opportunities for community involvement, responsibility and accountability within a supportive and encouraging living-learning environment that is conducive to the growth of each student and campus community as a whole.

Residence Life Programs

The residence life staff ensures that residential students are never bored by providing an array of programs to meet the unique needs of residents. Every week residents are invited to come out to a building-wide program in each of their residence halls.
