Residence Life and Housing

The mission of the Residence Life and Housing Office at Heidelberg University is to serve students by providing a safe living environment with resources needed to encourage success in and out of the classroom, which France Hall Pictureemphasize civic responsibility, mutual respect, interpersonal relationships, multicultural understanding, and community engagement. Students living on campus will forge friendships that last a lifetime while learning about different cultures, backgrounds and ideas, gaining an understanding of being part of a community, and developing their leadership skills. Residential living provides students with life skills which are transferable to careers and other aspects of independent living after graduation.
