usillg 8 Residence Life @ Bethune • Cook1nan University

B-CU Residence Halls are where our students study , work and play . Their living environment serves as a place where they return time and time again when they need to connect with who they are and who they are striving to become . B-CU ' s residential community consists of a series of residence halls , each with unique characteristics , but all part of one entity . Together , every residence hall brings students together to communicate and build memories , giving them the support they need to thrive as collegiate students .
Approximately 3000 students reside on the Bethune-Cookman University campus . In a typical year , residents come from all over the USA and countries abroad , enjoy a sense of belonging and create networks of friendship that cannot be developed anywhere else . Because of the sense of safety , academic success , and camaraderie , B-CU Housing retains its students year after year . Again and again , they take advantage of the various amenities , including electronic key entry , around-the-clock security , free internet and cable , buffet style breakfast , lunch and dinners ... and many other conveniences only B-CU can offer .
Housing & Residence Life is so much more than a place to lay your head . Each Hall functions as a smaller , learning-centered community that furthers the mission of Bethune-Cookman University . The Housing and Residence Life team avails itself of countless hours of planning and engagement with students so that our residents are offered opportunities to grow and develop in all aspects of their lives . Our educational community is designed to foster human diversity , civility , freedom-ofthought , good citizenship , and sometimes even uncomfortable self-development .
