Welcome to Residence Life!

Welcome to living on campus at the College of Saint Elizabeth! Residence Life is excited to have you living with us.

Living on campus and becoming involved in the campus community can be one of the most rewarding experiences of college. It extends your education beyond the classroom and offers important opportunities for engagement with your residential community. When you live on campus, you are always home. Your CSE home is not just your room, it includes all the people who make being an Eagle such a special part of your college experience.

From the President, to the dining hall staff, to your Community Assistant, to the professors, to the librarians, to the custodian in your residence hall – each person is an integral part of the community you call home. Residence Life staff members at CSE are committed to partnering with residents to create engaging environments in the residence halls where you will make everlasting memories and discover new friendships.

Community Assistants and Resident Coordinators have been carefully selected and trained to create welcoming and inclusive living environments that are conducive to students’ academic, personal and social endeavors.

By living on campus, you will interact with people who are talented and unique. You will meet people whose experiences, values, and priorities are different than your own. The residential community is a supportive environment where there is an appreciation of individual differences and a respect for individual rights. We hope you learn about your own diversity as well as that of our campus.

Living on campus puts students within walking distance of campus resources, including classes, the library, the dining hall, and recreation facilities. Wireless internet access, air conditioning and free laundry facilities are included with your room fees. Living on campus also comes with a full dining plan of 19 meals per week throughout the academic year.

We invite you to get involved! Students at CSE may choose to pursue opportunities to learn and practice leadership skills by becoming Community Assistants, members of the Residence Hall Council (RHC) or the Judicial Board, or work as a Hall receptionist. To be an involved student is to be a connected student. Research shows, students who are more involved on campus have higher GPAs, graduate in four years, and perform better academically. Get involved in your residence hall today!

The staff are here to encourage you, support you, challenge you, and inspire you to develop into the best version of yourself. Feel free to contact us – by phone (973) 290-4184, email at residencelife@cse.edu or stop by the Residence Life Office located in Founders Hall.
