What we do
The Office of Residence Life at Niagara does its best to provide every residential student on campus with an environment that will allow them to succeed both academically and socially. The office prides itself on providing for a “once-in-a-lifetime community experience” for all students, whether they are first year students in our first year residence halls or upper-class students in the apartments.
The Office of Residence Life is committed to creating an inclusive, safe and engaging residential environment that supports the academic, social, personal and spiritual growth of all resident students. We provide opportunities for students to take ownership of their communities and to develop abilities in the areas of service, civic responsibility, inclusiveness, personal responsibility, and respect for self and others. We strive to create and assess student focused initiatives that provide opportunities for growth and learning with a special focus on Niagara University’s core values of spirituality, knowledge, creativity, integrity and compassion.
The Office of Residence Life is committed to:
- Creating and supporting a campus environment that is safe, inclusive and welcoming.
- Ensuring that our policies, procedures and practices are based in the values of fairness and equality.
- Promoting opportunities for students, faculty and staff to engage in both self-reflection and open dialogue in order to foster learning and growth related to diversity and mutual understanding.

Commitment to Diversity and Social Justice
Residence Life is committed to creating and maintaining safe, inclusive communities that welcome and accept people of all identities. The diverse characteristics and backgrounds of our residents and staff are central to the mission and values of Residence Life. We seek to create an environment that invites the full and equal participation from all who live and work in our halls. We believe that a multicultural, socially-just environment is essential to the personal growth of students and staff, and their involvement in our increasingly global world.
- Our residence halls are global, multicultural communities of individuals representing a diverse blend of backgrounds and academic interests. We strive to work and live together in an atmosphere of positive contact and mutual respect.
- Residence Life recognizes and values the commonalities and differences among students at Niagara University. Discrimination, sexual and bias-related harassment, hate crimes and other violations of student rights disrupt the educational process and are not tolerated.
- Students in our communities have the right to be free of discrimination for reasons of ability, age, color, ethnicity, gender identity, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, socioeconomic background, veteran status or unique individual style.
