Living on campus connects students with the vibrant life of the University.

The Office of Residence Life promotes student growth and opportunities through safe, supportive, inclusive, and academically-focused environments in premier housing communities led by caring and engaging staff.
Residence Hall v. Dorm
The terms "residence hall" and "dorm" are often used interchangeable. However, there is a difference between the two. An important objective of residence halls at The University of Toledo is to provide not only a place to sleep, but opportunities for educational and personal growth. UToledo offers residential living communities to enhance the intellectual climate and provide nurturing and inclusive environments that facilitate engaged student learning and citizenry.
Aside from the obvious advantage of access and convenience, living on campus is a great way to meet people and make life-long friends that transforms out of class time into a much richer and deeper experience.
All first and second-year students who live outside of a 25-mile driving radius from UToledo are required to live on campus. Students who reside within a 25-mile radius can choose to live on campus, but it is not required if they are commuting from home.
Specialized Living Communities
To get more out of your stay in the residence halls, consider joining one of our Specialized Living Communities. These communities extend student learning outside of the classroom and promote student intellectual, social and personal growth.
