Student Life FAQ

Where do on-campus Regent students live?
Many Robertson School of Government students live in either the Regent Village, a university-owned apartment complex about a mile from the school, or the Regent Commons, apartments built on the Regent University campus. Space is limited, so apply as early as possible. A variety of nonuniversity- owned apartment complexes are also available near the school. View more Regent Housing information.
