Residence Life

 Res Life students

The residential community at Salem State University is a place where learning and development occur through academic initiatives, leadership opportunities, programming, and the efforts of the residence life staff.

A true Salem State experience involves more than going to classes and earning a diploma. Life in the residence halls includes involvement in groups and organizations, participating in community service activities, connecting with faculty, attending athletic events, and learning about cultures and lifestyles different from your own.
