The goal of the Idaho State University housing staff is to provide and maintain a residence life program that is conducive to both academic success and personal development. Residence Halls are available to all undergraduate students and apartment units are an option for married students, students with children, graduates and those with special needs. Students are encouraged to take full advantage of the many opportunities and services that are offered by on-campus living and to accept the responsibilities that are involved in the experience.
