Living in a residence hall is an important factor in the process of both social and academic growth. Residence halls foster a living-learning environment where students can develop interpersonal skills and intercultural understanding among students with diverse backgrounds. Pacific considers residence hall community living as one of the most valuable learning experiences of a student’s educational career.
All students under 20 years old prior to the beginning of the fall term are required to live and board on-campus unless the student has fulfilled the two year residency requirement. All students who sign a Housing Contract and move into housing are required to live and board on campus for the duration of the contract terms (full academic year).
Students under 18 years old prior to moving into housing are required to sign an additional contract.
