• Residence Life

    On behalf of the entire Residence Life staff, we are excited to welcome you the HSU campus! Hardin-Simmons University offers spacious, updated living arrangements to make you feel right at home at HSU. The residence life staff is comprised of the Associate Dean of Students, the Residence Life Associate, 5 Residence Hall Directors, and 22 Resident Assistants. We are passionate about working with our students and meeting their needs.

    Being comfortable and feeling at home is an important part of life outside of the classroom at HSU. HSU offers two men’s residence halls and three women’s residence halls for on campus living. Behrens and Nix halls serve as our freshmen residence halls while Anderson, Lange and Ferguson halls serve as our upperclassmen halls. Students can also look forward to residence halls coordinating activities to compliment other fun and exciting opportunities within student life.

    Follow the resources and links provided on this page to find out more about each specific residence hall, the accommodations provided, and what you will need to bring when you come to Hardin-Simmons University. We look forward to having you on campus!
