Bridgewater State University is a great place to live and learn!
Bridgewater State University provides a supportive, safe campus environment for our students. We are dedicated to making your transition to life in the residence halls as smooth and successful as possible. Whether you join one of the Living Learning Communities or strike out on your own, you can find your home at BSU.
Approximately 2,700 students live on campus in 11 residence halls, which are differentiated by type of rooms and living arrangements and the class standing of residents.
Living Learning Communities (LLCs) provide students with the opportunity to live among others with similar interests and academic focuses. Students who choose to live in a learning community benefit from targeted programming and access to resources that will help them become more successful while at the university.
Top 10 Reasons to Live on Campus
STUDENT SUCCESS: When you live on campus, you have better access to academic supports, from meeting with professors to taking advantage of the Academic Achievement Center and other resources.
SAFETY: With facilities on-call 24/7 and BSU Residential Safety and Student Security Officers located in residential buildings, you can take solace knowing help is there when you need it, any time of day and night.
CAMARADERIE: You live alongside folks and create long-lasting friendships you might not have otherwise. With activities always happening, it’s easy to get a group together to participate.
ALL-INCLUSIVE: You don’t have to worry about being late with the utility bill, because it’s all included and you never have to cook thanks to customized meal plans. The ResNet all-in-one communications package is hard to beat, offering a cable package that includes specialized technical support and innovative services.
NO PARKING HASSLES: Finding a parking spot on any college campus is often a challenge. Instead of circling the campus behind the wheel of a car, you can walk, or better yet take a free bus offered through BSU’s Transit Service.
GROWTH: Living on campus helps you develop social and independent living skills that you'll utilize in the "real-world."
TRAVEL LIGHT: Instead of dragging everything around campus with you, you can drop your belongings off in your room between classes.
SLEEP IN: Feel free to hit the snooze button and still make it to class on time.
CONNECTION: Students who live on campus say it’s easier to create a closer connection to the institution that fosters a sense of school pride.
