Living on campus is a unique opportunity to form new friendships and build strong ties with residents. Regardless of their origins and backgrounds, students are drawn together by their shared experiences in residential living.
Living on campus is not only a great time, but students who live on campus do better in classes and are all around more adjusted at the end of college. Living on campus is quite affordable and our residential communities offer you many options to choose from. This page explains the application process for incoming and transfer students wanting to join the Dominican University community.
Through community and interactions, Dominican promotes a living and learning environment that balances personal and academic growth and community well-being. We assist students in learning responsibility by holding them accountable for community standards.
Residence Life staff members are committed to helping residents create a positive living environment. Through programming and involvement in their community, students will be challenged and supported to develop their social, educational, recreational, and cultural understanding.
Whether you are beginning your collegiate experience or continuing your education, the Department of Residence Life encourages you to consider the many benefits of campus living and invites you to join our residence life community. Explore our site to find out more information about Residence Life and the services we provide at Dominican. Any questions or comments can be directed to us via email or phone at email@example.com or (708) 524-6217. Thank you!
The Housing Application is available online. If you are a returning student, you must be logged into MyDU to complete your application.
Applying to live on campus is really quite simple! To begin the process, do the following:
$200 for new students
$50 for returning students
Once the Office of Residence Life receives your correctly completed and signed housing application and proof of housing deposit, a housing assignment can be made.
Incoming freshman can expect to receive their housing assignments by email and post during the last week of July. All other students will be notified of their assignments through email on a rolling basis.
All main campus residents should report to the Coughlin Commons to check in, while Aquinas Hall residents should report to the Priory Campus main entrance. If you are a new resident student and you are not able to move in until after the Friday of Welcome Weekend, please check into the halls during one of the returning student time slots. All students will need to have insurance and emergency contact information available during the check-in process. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns.
