Residence Halls and Dining

Welcome Home!

OLLU offers a variety of options for students who wish to live on campus. Living on campus offers the advantage of 24/7 access to campus events, resources and your friends. Living on campus helps you build life-long connections.

Residence Life at OLLU provides much more than a place to sleep, eat and study. Students receive educational, cultural, recreational and social support through our guided group living environment.

The university’s dining services program offers students convenience, variety and quality with four dining options including a convenience store near the residence halls.

Learning to live in community and creating a home away from home is one of the great lessons of college. Living with different types of people teaches understanding, patience, humor and the meaning of deep, forever friendships, as well as the obvious life skills such as budgeting and time management.
