Residence Life – Community Living

Don’t just attend BU, Live it!

Living on campus is the Bishop’s experience. Community Living immerses students in a dynamic social environment, promoting collaboration, cultural exchange, and the development of essential life skills within a supportive and inclusive atmosphere.

Bishop’s University’s Curricular Approach to Student Affairs

We recognize that the student experience is a holistic one; learning opportunities that foster intellectual, professional and personal growth are present as much outside the classroom as they are within it.

To support the student learning experience, an educational priority that is aligned with the culture, values and mission of the University was developed: as a result of their Bishop’s experience, students will insightfully engage with the world.
