Campus Housing

When you clicked on housing, you began to explore the possibility of living on campus. At Grayson, we believe that your first step to becoming your own person independently and socially is to expand your horizons and experience interaction with a group living environment that consists of students from different cultures, religions, and ethnic groups

Living on campus will provide an overall educational experience that helps contribute to successful student development. This environment challenges you to develop socially, increase personal awareness, commit to serious learning and share your ideas and goals among your peers.

The Office of Residence Life is located in Student Services Area of the Administrative Service Building.
