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 friendships 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.


Residence Life fosters a safe and comfortable living-learning community that furthers the mission of Shepherd University. We advocate for and adapt to the changing needs of students through the continuous enhancement of facilities, programs, and services. We empower students to develop as citizens through the exploration of individual freedoms, autonomy, and accountability to themselves and the community.
