Why It’s Better to Live on Campus

Meeting new friends as an international student

Living on campus is the best way to fully experience college life! Due to the increasing demand to live in residence halls, many colleges and universities are finding it challenging to guarantee housing on campus. Go Campus guarantees a place in residence halls for all undergraduate students and we’re giving you five reasons why this is essential to your college experience!

Great place to meet new people

A simple walk down the  halls and you will meet students from all over the USA and the world! Living in residence halls is the best way to meet new people when you arrive on campus, but also to grow your social circle at the beginning of each school year. Students get together to form study groups, grab some food or simply hang out in the common areas. Living on campus provides a tight knit community of people, leading to strong friendships and good support over the years.

A hassle-free life

Living in residence halls will make your life at university so much easier. No need to worry about maintenance, paying your electricity bill or going grocery shopping, it’s all included! All Go Campus students living on campus receive a meal plan of minimum 14 meals per week. Living on campus also means not having to worry about transportation to get to class or extracurricular activities. No hassles, no worries!

Never miss out!

Everything happens on campus: events, parades, intramural, clubs, gatherings, and more! Living in the middle of it all means you’ll never miss out on anything. Being involved in campus life, whether by joining an extracurricular or helping out at an event, will help you learn about yourself and gain skills greatly valued by employers.

No furniture moving

Even build-it-yourself furniture won’t fit in your allocated luggage when flying over for your first year of college. And you don’t even want to think about the stress of trying to sell all your furniture before moving back home at the end of your stay. The traditional concept of residence halls is to present the students with a furnished environment for them to live in. It’s then up to you to decorate and make your room feel like home!

It’s part of the experience!

No American college experience would be complete without life on campus! It’s a unique experience that you are sure to look back on with many amusing stories to tell! You have all the time in the world to become an independent adult, but living in halls is only possible for these few years of your life. Don’t miss out!
