Office of Residence Life

ATTENTION: Campus housing is now full for the fall 2018 semester. Visit the Office of Student Life site for options for off-campus housing.


Residence Life is an integral part of the educational mission of Bowie State University, committed to providing a quality, enriching living-learning experience, resulting in academic and personal growth as well as development of the student.

Living in one of the residence halls at Bowie State University is an important component of a student's total learning and personal growth experience. It provides a unique opportunity for students to participate in campus life to the fullest extent possible because of its proximity to cultural, intellectual, and social events. The idea of residence hall living is to create and maintain an environment that is conducive to the total development of each member of the community. The Residence Life staff, composed of resident assistants and senior staff, is strongly committed to this ideal.

On-campus living provides a variety of challenges and opportunities for each resident student. Although this unique living environment offers a large degree of freedom, it imposes an obligation on the resident student to use this freedom wisely. In addition to assuming responsibility of his/her own behavior, every resident must respect the needs and concerns of others.
