Welcome to the Office of Residence Life
Residence Life is an integral part of the Shaw University educational experience. Although freshmen and sophomores are required to live on campus all students are encouraged to do so. Living on campus is an exciting experience, which offers a unique opportunity
to learn and grow as an individual in the Shaw University community.
We are committed to providing for our students a safe, comfortable living and learning environment with the opportunity for:
- communal study
- shared responsibility
- cooperative and congenial living
- self management and group cohesiveness
- mutual respect, support, trust and interdependence
- recognition of the strengths and limitations of others
Students who need to return to campus, such as international students, students with transportation limitations, students with clinical or internship obligations in the area, or students with technology limitations, should complete the Special Housing
Submit Special Housing Accommodation Form
