Graduate Upper-Division Halls
Residents of our graduate upper-division halls can get involved with the Resident Leadership Board (RLB). The RLB is made up of diverse student leaders and residents from both buildings. Students can become a part of the RLB at any time during the year. The organization’s goals focus around a wide range of events and activities from suggesting improvements, to leadership development, to planning social events.

An exciting and vital part of community life in Family & Graduate Housing includes the many free activities and programs offered for residents of all ages. We enjoy offering these opportunities to you and your family and hope that you will have time to get involved. Hundreds of activities take place each year, including weekly events such as Cooking Club or Parent-Child Playgroup, and annual traditions like Final Fling or Fall Festival.
