The Office of Residential Life at Fordham University’s Rose Hill campus strives to foster an inclusive living-learning community that supports the institution’s educational mission and Jesuit, Catholic heritage. Committed to the Jesuit ideal of educating the whole person, staff members empower residents to respect each other as individuals, seek new experiences, and take an active and creative role in shaping their living environments.
Residents are encouraged to develop their fullest potential, as well as hold one another accountable, creating a sense of community, mutual respect, and personal responsibility to themselves and others. In partnership with the greater University community, staff members professionally provide safe and well-maintained halls, University resources in times of need, and responsible policies and procedures that reflect Fordham’s Jesuit, Catholic values.
Residence Halls provide leadership opportunities that serve as personal journeys, through which residents develop into people of character, conscience and integrity through a commitment to service and learning. The office is comprised of educators who model caring for and serving with others, respect for the rights of all community members and living Fordham’s mission and values.
