Welcome to Housing and Residence Life

Living Learning Communities

If you’re thinking of coming to Boise State, please consider living on campus and applying to be in one of our six Living Learning Communities (LLCs).  Only here can you live with 20-30 other students in your same college, have a faculty member just down the hallway, and get more support than you can imagine.  If this isn’t incentive enough to check us out, please consider our LLC students have higher 4 and 6 year graduation rates than most other student populations on campus (only Honors is ahead of us).  That means graduating with less debt and an increased chance of getting a job in your chosen field.   Click HERE for more information.

First Year Residential Engagement Program (FY REP)

In its inaugural year, the First Year Residential Engagement Program is designed specifically to support incoming First Year students who live on campus in their connection to Boise State.  Through fun trips, on and off campus events, and the Workshop Series, the FY REP ensures First Year students have the knowledge and access to resources on campus that will help them have a great and successful first year at college.  Click HERE to read the article in our student newspaper, the Arbiter.

RHA Honorable Mention Homecoming Float 2RHA Receives Honorable Mention

In the 2015 Boise State Homecoming Parade, RHA’s float receives Honorable Mention.  This was a tremendous feat because at the same time as decorating the float and participating in the parade, RHA student leaders also work with the Student Foundations team to set up the Bronco Roundup Student Tailgate.  Well done RHA!!  For more information about how to get involved with this great organization, please visit the RHA Website.

Do you live on campus? Planning on staying over Winter Break?

Because many students will leave campus during this time frame, it is critical Housing and Residence Life have a strong sense as to who WILL remain on campus at any point during this break.  If you live in our residence halls, suites, or 9-month town homes and intend on staying on campus for any time during this break, please click HERE for more information and to apply. Food service will be limited, but the Chaffee POD will be open 1-7pm daily (except 12/24, 12/25, & 1/1).  There is no charge for staying in your room/suite/townhome during the break.
