Regent University seeks to deliver an exceptional on-campus living experience that supports the academic mission of the university. For many students, a significant part of undergraduate education is active participation in the campus community, particularly as residents. The Office of Residence Life strives to provide undergraduate students with a safe, clean and well-maintained environment that is conducive to academic excellence, individual accountability, community development and living a Christ-centered life. The Office of Residence Life aims to encourage positive and engaging residence hall communities through planned social activities, academic support, and a general context for spiritual growth and maturation through fellowship with peers. Every floor in the Regent Commons has a Resident Assistant (RA) who offers guidance, support, and plans various events and programs. RAs work closely with Life Group Leaders from Campus Ministries to promote spiritual vitality. Each residence hall is supervised by a Resident Director (RD) who coordinates that building's RA staff and is available to assist residents with their concerns. Residence Life staff members are eager to meet and encourage residents as they follow God's calling over their lives while at Regent University.
