Residence Life


Residence Life Staff 2016

Welcome to Lewis University on-campus living! At Lewis University, residence halls are more than a place to sleep and eat. They are extensions of the classroom; a place where students learn to appreciate diversity by living and working with people different from themselves. Students learn decision-making skills, develop independence, gain self-confidence, and learn to accept responsibility.
