Living on campus at Central affords you many opportunities and has proven to be instrumental in the academic success of Central students. As an on-campus resident, you will have ample opportunity to grow and develop outside the classroom as you live with people who understand the educational process and can discuss classes, professors, homework, and exams with you. Living on campus enhances your overall education and is perhaps one of the best ways to develop friendships with peers that will be cherished for a lifetime. Great opportunities await as you embark on your college career. At Central, we have 17 residence halls offering a variety of attractive and complete housing and dining packages. The residence halls house 35 to 476 occupants. Furniture, expanded basic FM-TV cable service plus one premium channel, basic telephone service, utilities, and coin-operated laundry facilities are also provided. New and renovated residence halls have card swipe for entrance and laundry facilities.
In addition, many halls have their own pool table, piano, or ping-pong table. For mobility impaired students, all residence halls have limited access to the first-floor common areas. All residence halls are also smoke free.
Wireless internet is available in all of our residence halls.
To expedite your residence hall check out process, please sign up for a check out time with an RA. This will need to be a prearranged time so there are no additional fees and gives us the ability to assist you as you depart. We have an exit survey we will ask you to fill out as well so we get to know your reasons for leaving.
