Campus Life

Residence Life

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.

Dining Services

Meal plans are convenient, flexible, and loaded with options. Meal plans include dining locations all across campus with a range of menus and offerings.

Student Center

The Shepherd University Student Center, through its services, programs, and dynamic facilities, provides a welcoming and inclusive sense of place where students, faculty, staff, alumni and visitors gather to share experiences and exchange diverse ideas. The Student Center fosters student engagement, community and learning through recreational activities, cultural events, social programming and leadership development initiatives.
