Welcome to Housing & Residence Life! On behalf of the Office of Housing & Residence Life (OHRL) at Bluefield State University, welcome to your home away from home. I want you to know that we are excited you will be residing on campus with us as you start or continue your journey at BSU. The Housing & Residence Life staff is committed to providing you with the tools and resources you need to be a successful student and scholar. We work hard every day to assist all residence hall students in achieving their academic and career goals. Studies have demonstrated that college students who live on campus have higher GPA’s than those that do not, are more involved in campus life, and graduate at a higher rate than non-residents. The team in Housing & Residence Life is excited to take the lead in organizing hall programs and activities that will support your time in Big Blue Housing. Please get involved in all that Bluefield State has to offer. Our residence hall students are involved with a plethora of student activities that are not only important in developing leadership, communication, and interpersonal skills, but also are great ways to make friends and enjoy your time on “The Hill.” Congratulations on your decision to attend an outstanding institution of higher learning, and welcome home. GO BIG BLUE!
