Residence Life is specifically for The College at Southeastern. Residence Life operates within the Student Life Office yet works closely with the Housing Office. The purpose of Residence Life is to develop Christian leaders and to assist students in their spiritual formation by providing opportunities for academic, social, spiritual, and personal growth.

Resident Assistants (RA’s) help to accomplish this in three ways: 

  1. RA’s serve as a resource. They aid students as they transition to campus, answer questions, direct students to appropriate departments, assist with roommate conflicts, handle emergency situations, and listen to students with concerns. 
  2. RA’s also hold students accountable in many areas of their personal life including academics, spiritual growth, time management, and encouraging students to make wise personal choices that will glorify God. In addition, RAs keep students accountable for respecting college property and abiding by Housing policies.
  3. RA’s build community and provide opportunities for students to get connected with fellow students. RAs provide a variety of programs and encourage students to attend other campus events. 

Residence Life Policy: 

  • All residential students with less than 48 credit hours completed toward their degree are required to live on campus in designated residence halls.
  • Once a student completes 48 credit hours, they will transition to designated apartment-style housing, provided space is available, while still remaining part of the Residence Life Program. 
  • Once a student completes 72 credit hours, they may choose to remain within the Residence Life designated areas (provided space is still available), move to a non-Residence Life area of campus housing, or move out of campus housing.

  • Students who are married. 


  • Students who marry during enrollment will be allowed to move out immediately.
