The Office of Residence Life

Our Mission

The Office of Residence Life plays a vital role in supporting the academic mission of McKendree University by creating an atmosphere that encourages personal, social, and academic development.  We will promote a clean, safe, well-maintained living environment that allows students the opportunity to study and learn about living in a community.  We will foster self-responsibility, trust, and respect for others and provide an atmosphere which is comfortable and accepting.  The Residence Life program is designed to promote the holistic development of students through both planned and spontaneous activities.
