What's it like to live at Shepherd?

Endless Opportunities

Becoming a Shepherd Ram means joining a community. No matter how you describe yourself, there is a place for you on campus. Introverts and extroverts, athletes and non-athletes, professional studies and liberal arts majors, and those who have yet to decide. You can all create a “home away from home” by living in the residence halls. There is lots to do, things to learn, and lifelong friends to begin. A caring staff is here to support and guide you through your transition to college life. Far more than a place to live, the residence halls are integral part of the Ram community.

Potomac Place

Shepherd University’s new, 5-story, 81,000 square foot residence hall on West Campus—including 298 beds and numerous amenities—will open August 2017.
