Benedictine University maintains and operates residence halls and apartments as an integral part of academic life in the belief that educational experiences are not solely contained to the classroom, laboratory or library. The residence halls and apartments provide an opportunity for students to combine academic life with social development. Students must establish and test their own values, develop social skills, determine priorities and learn to organize their time. Daily living with others encourages the development of a cooperative attitude, respect for individual rights and a sense of group responsibility. As a result, the residence halls and apartments develop diverse communities which meet the needs of its members both individually and collectively and create attitudes and skills necessary to progress toward the realization of those conditions which make up a healthy community.
This web site provides a brief overview of the apartment policies and procedures. It does not and cannot include all information about the residence halls and apartments. The guidelines that apply are the same as those for all Benedictine University students and can be found on this web site and the Student Handbook. If there is any information that you believe should be included, please stop by the residence life office in Krasa 115 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
