As partners enacting the mission of
Hardin-Simmons University, Residence Life is dedicated to the learning
experience of students through on-campus living. We cultivate a
Christ-centered, diverse, and transformative living-learning environment,
developing whole persons who are growing in their capacity to be responsible
participants in their communities, faithful citizens of God’s Kingdom, and
agents of change in the world. We accomplish this through a vibrant residential
program where we intentionally connect our students to God and each other.

Cultivating Diverse Perspectives
Students who live on campus at HSU have higher grades, faster graduation rates, and are more connected to other students and faculty through the campus experience. As a residential campus, HSU wants all students to thrive both in and out of the classroom all four years. We firmly believe that the relationships built in a vibrant community led by Residence Life Staff will empower students to make connections between faith, living, and learning within a diverse community. With this philosophy, HSU policy is that all undergraduate students taking more than six semester hours are required to live on campus.
In order to be eligible to live in on-campus housing you must be a full-time or part-time undergraduate or graduate student. Full-time or part-time students must be enrolled in at least 6 units of undergraduate/graduate classes per term.
