The Office of Residence Life has one full time professional staff member and two graduate assistants, who live on campus along with the students. Because we are such a small office of live-in staff, we are able to make personal connections with students, and provide direct responses to inquiries from current students, prospective students, and their families. Our staff strives to provide an excellent on campus experience for Elms students. Our goal is to provide students a living environment that is welcoming, safe, and fun. We believe each student has the right to sleep, study, and socialize, and are dedicated to ensuring that is the case. We take steps to reach those goals through fostering community development, personal growth, and promoting policy and community standards.
