Residence Life at SBU

Welcome to SBU Residence Life

Our commitment…

  1.  To provide a living-learning community that develops students academically, socially and spiritually while producing servant leaders.
  2. To provide well managed, safe and sanitary housing facilities for on-campus residents.
  3. To produce trained and qualified staff members who support the advancement of a Christ-like environment in the housing facilities on campus and throughout the Bolivar Community.

SBU is interested in providing the best possible residential environment for its students.  Residential living is a unique experience that provides opportunity for growth and learning.  Each facility is overseen by a Resident Director who is dedicated to developing and directing the student staff.  Resident Assistants are students who have been carefully selected to assist you during your time in campus housing.  The combined efforts of the Residence Life staff provides the facilities with individual identity and opportunities to help create some of the most meaningful experiences in your life.

Express Yourself…

Your room is your home at SBU.  Decorations are limited only by your creativity!  Rooms are painted in a neutral color.  Reusable adhesive putty or removable 3M hooks must be used to hang wall decorations.  (Nails or tacks may not be used).

Develop Relationships...

Opportunities for your personal investment abound in residence life. The interpersonal skills and responsibilities you will learn in student staff, and involvement in residence life pay great dividends, even beyond your years at SBU. Programming efforts in a variety of areas, study skills, intramural sports, social issues, and safety concerns, all encourage your development beyond the classroom.

Your Opportunity...

The committed staff, creative programming, your unique room, campus involvement, and contagious fun describe Residence Life at SBU. Come be a part of it!
