Living on Campus

Home sweet home.

Residential housing is more than just a place to sleep and study. Living on campus is an integral part of the college experience. On a residential liberal arts campus like ours, learning takes place 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and offers new opportunities that can be both challenging and enjoyable.

  • Discover a new-found feeling of freedom in a safe, supportive, environment.
  • Make meaningful connections and forge friendships that will last a lifetime.
  • Facilitate both personal growth and professional development.
  • Be a great resource and learn to help one another.

Live together. Learn together.

Keystone offers residential Living, Learning Communities that allow students in similar phases of development (OR with similar interests and goals) to live and study together. These residential communities engage those students living in residence halls by providing more opportunities for academic and personal growth. Living, Learning Communities increase the likelihood you will make meaningful connections and forge friendships that will last a lifetime.

First Year Experience

The FYE encourages students to begin developing their identities by exploring personal values, identifying personal strengths and areas for improvement, and making safe and socially responsible decisions. This program also focuses on effective community engagement by supporting students as they develop a sense of belonging and as they come to understand how their actions affect the world around them.
