Research shows, the college residential experience significantly contributes to academic success, graduating on time, and the positive development of the whole student. At Clarion University, housing includes:

  • A 24/7 community of support
  • A place where safety and security are top priorities
  • A residential experience that fosters personal development, meaningful engagement, and life-long relationships
  • Convenience to all academic buildings, Eagle Commons, Gemmell Student Center, and Tippin Gymnasium 
  • Fully furnished rooms and spaces
  • All-inclusive living, including housing, utilities, cable, and Internet

All students living in our residence halls/suites are required to purchase a meal plan. To learn about your options and purchase a meal plan visit Dine on Campus.

Our staff is trained to assist you and ensure that you have a positive experience while living in campus housing.  We have designed a variety of programs and activities which we are confident you will enjoy.
