Dear Student and Parent(s)/Guardian(s),
On behalf of the entire Residence Life Staff, I’d like to welcome you to Bloomsburg University. We look forward to having you join our on-campus living community. Over the next few months you will receive information from our office which should make your move from home to campus living as comfortable as possible.
Students must complete MyHousing Self-Service, which includes the terms of agreement, personal preferences, roommate request option and dining plan selection. I urge parents and students to read the terms of agreement and discuss this information, so that each is fully aware of our housing/food service policies, procedures and services. Please note, beginning in Fall 2021, Bloomsburg University will implement a two-year on-campus residency requirement. With the success of our students at the forefront of this decision, the plan is rooted in data relating to student success, access to support services, and offers a transition and more healthy pathway toward life after college.
The most important point to remember is that if you have any questions about the Residence Hall/Food Service Agreement or our program, you may contact a member of the staff, or myself, at any time. There is always someone here to help answer your questions or relieve some of the anxieties you may be experiencing.
Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs
