Residence Life

The Department of Residence Life serves the Samford community by providing high-quality and safe residential facilities while fostering the resident's educational, personal, social, and spiritual development within a Christian environment. Residence Life is a unit of the university’s Student Affairs and Enrollment Management Division. Fulfilling the mission is reached through provision, maintenance and operation of comfortable, attractive and safe residence facilities; through provision of a trained, competent professional staff committed to the Christian faith; and through provision of organized programs and activities, and personal services for residents. The department also seeks to provide opportunities that continuously nurture a resident’s total personality and self-esteem, resulting in achievement of each individual’s highest potential.
