Residence Life

Welcome to Residence Life

Our goal is to assist you in the transition from life at home to life on campus. We provide a safe living environment with hall directors and resident assistants who have been taught by professional staff how to handle diverse situations.

Living on campus enhances your personal, spiritual, and intellectual development as you reside and work closely with your peers. William Carey is culturally diverse—students from all around come here to receive a Christian education. This affords you the wonderful opportunity of learning and understanding customs different from your own.

This is an exciting time of your life, and we look forward to having you with us at William Carey University.
