Our Mission Statement

The Office of Housing & Residence Life at Cedar Crest College provides a safe, comfortable, and educational living environment for all students living on-campus. Our staff is committed to the overall growth, development, and academic success of each resident. Our office believes that the residential experience is transformative and strives to encourage growth, connection, and empowerment for all resident students.


GROW: Students living on campus are given the tools to grow into the person they want to become… a valued member of the community, a friend, a leader, a scholar, and more! The residential experience provides opportunities for our students to learn more about themselves and the world around them, while providing support for personal and professional growth.

CONNECT: By living on campus, students become a part of a diverse and inclusive community where they can connect with students from around the world. These connections help to enhance the residential experience, providing moments of learning, self-discovery, and creating memories that will last a lifetime. The relationships forged in the residence halls are carried over time in the personal lives of our students and in the professional world, creating connections to job opportunities and alumnae.

EMPOWER: The residential experience is transformational and helps to empower our students to become valuable members of the Cedar Crest community. The experience allows students to become more independent, refine valuable life skills, and truly be engaged in their college learning process. Whether it is participating in an event in the residence halls, working to resolve an issue with your roommate, or becoming a leader on your floor, students leave the residence halls empowered to conquer the challenges ahead.
