Dynamic and Dedicated
Welcome to Residential Life at the University of Bridgeport!
Living on campus is an important part of the overall experience and development of students at the university. Our residence halls are not just places for students to sleep, but are vibrant communities where students are ENGAGED as active members of the campus, EDUCATED on topics directly related to their success and EMPOWERED with the critical thinking skills that will help in their transformation into a responsible and active member of a global community.
Our residence halls are dynamic and diverse environments with students from throughout the country and all over the world! Our dedicated staff is committed to supporting your academic pursuits, personal growth, and respect for the diverse residential community of the University of Bridgeport.
We work with students, faculty, and staff to plan and implement programs and social activities to enhance your experience as a member of the campus community and create an atmosphere where you cultivate positive life-long relationships and connections with other students, the faculty, and staff of the University of Bridgeport.
