Residence life is a major part of the Providence experience. Providence has a strong community setting; it is often referred to by students as a family environment. Living on campus helps Providence students develop connections between faith, learning, and living. Our programs aid in academic learning as well as focus on character building and spritual formation. Full-time Resident Directors live on campus and serve as mentors and educators. Student leaders in residence, known at Resident Assistants, provide peer support for resident students and develop community in their section of residence with a group of 10-15 students. This group meets weekly for Care Group and often becomes a strong unit of support for each of the individual members.
Each of our residence halls is set up for double occupancy, and therefore includes two beds, two desks, two desk chairs, and shelving, storage and closet space adequate for two people.

Once a week each Residence Hall gathers for Care Group. These groups meet with the goals of growing spiritually and relationally… and having a blast.
Student Development Presents
Student Development Presents happens several times throughout the semester and takes different forms. These events aim to promote community and individual growth. Events done in the past have included discussion groups, dorm wide competitions, learning practical skills, support groups and more.
Typically dorm rooms are off limits to members of the opposite sex, however twice a week dorms are open to all resident students to visit, regardless of gender. This provides an opportunity for students to be able to visit their friends and make new ones in the room they call home.
