Harrisburg University provides high quality, affordable undergraduate student housing and residence life services through various partners.

While on-campus housing is NOT mandatory, all new, first-time students are encouraged to live on-campus if not commuting from home. Any enrolled undergraduate student at Harrisburg University is eligible to apply to live in University-partnered housing. Housing is not guaranteed, but new students that apply on time will not have issues with housing availability.

Each ultra-modern apartment suite offers furniture. Basic utilities and Wi-Fi internet service are included in the rental housing fee. A shared laundry room with card-operated machines is provided for residents’ use. Cable TV hook-ups are available, but must be paid directly by the student occupants to the service providers. 

Harrisburg University Housing & Residence Life strives to provide a safe, inclusive, and socially engaging residential community for students. The Student Life staff is committed to nurturing an on-campus living community that supports students’ educational and personal development
