Welcome from the Director
It is more than a place to live.
Welcome to the residence halls at Angelo State University and what I hope will be a learning and enjoyable experience for you.
When you live on campus at Angelo State University, you will meet new people, get involved in student activities and be close to all your classes. Oh, yeah— you will also have plenty of opportunities to study.
Finding a place to fit in will not be a problem. Our residence halls have updated furniture and modern styles, and each hall has its own community and distinct living environment. If you apply early, you get to choose where you will be most comfortable.
Meet new people.
You will not only have a roommate when you live on campus, you will also meet other students in your community through campus activities and programs. Resident assistants (RAs) are there to offer help along the way. Among many other things, the RAs help students worried about a tough midterm, provide guidance in roommate conflicts and give support to students having family crises.
Programs and activities for on-campus residents are plentiful at ASU. They range from going as a group to a comedy routine and movie night to in-hall presentations on topics relevant to college students, such as relationships, managing money, coping with stress and (oh, yeah) how to get good grades.
Be close to classes.
Students in most residence halls have, at most, a 10–15 minute walk to their classes. And the best part is, they do not have to fuss with finding a parking spot in the morning. That on-campus convenience can come in handy after a long night of studying.
Each residence hall has multiple study rooms that are perfect for both studying alone and working on group projects. Many are equipped with dry-erase boards, have wireless access throughout and electrical outlets for plugging in laptops.
Enjoy a few more perks.
We realize that for many students, going to college is their first experience living away from home. We want to help make that transition as smooth as possible by providing quick access to food, easy opportunities to do laundry and secure building entrances.
On-campus students have meal plans that allow them to grab a quick meal in the cafeteria, the University Center or any of the six campus dining facilities. With so many other things keeping you busy, you do not have to worry about grocery shopping or planning meals.
Each residence hall has its own laundry facilities, and the price of using the machines is included in semester housing fees. Students who live on campus do not have to lug around a bag of quarters.
Students access their respective residence halls by using their campus ID and their campus identification number. Entrances, exits and most common areas are video-monitored for increased security.
