Returning Student Move-In | Sunday, August 27, 2023 from 9 am - 2 pm
For all breaks, the residence halls close. These breaks include Thanksgiving Break, Winter Break, and Spring Break. In the event of extenuating circumstances, residents may obtain permission to remain on campus during closure from the Office of Residence
Life. Such a request is completed utilizing the 'Request to Stay' form sent by Residence Life via email before the break. Requests will be reviewed case by case on the following basis:
Failure to comply with break housing policies could result in community standards proceedings or fines.
All undergraduate students are required to live on campus during the first 3 years (six semesters) of attendance, except as noted below or decided upon by the Director of Residence Life and Dean of Students after review of an official appeal.
Residence Life is an extension of the educational services provided by Hilbert to support student learning holistically. Our residency requirement is derived from national statistics that show students who live in residence halls tend to perform better academically, acclimate more rapidly to the collegiate environment, engage in more developmental opportunities, and are more satisfied with their overall experience.
The only exceptions to the residency requirement are as follows:
Appeals to reside off campus must be submitted using the Residency Requirement Appeal Form and will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Appeals to reside off campus must be submitted at least 30 days before Hilbert’s official move in date. In the case a student is under the residency requirement but does not live on campus, they will be assessed a fine based on the day they withdraw from housing or vacate the space and return keys.

Our living-learning communities provide you with a safe living experience enriched in activities and opportunities to gain/enhance relationships and develop independence.
We pride ourselves on providing one of the best residential experiences along with inclusive dining programs.
When you’re surrounded by fellow students, you have the opportunity to collaborate and learn from each other. Many of the people you hall with may be in the same classes you’re in, or have taken them before. Friends can be a tremendous academic resource and being able to pop into the room next door to ask a question is unrivaled.
Between school, work, and sleep deprivation, the last thing anyone wants to worry about the commute to campus. This is even more important to underclassmen, who are adapting to an independent life style – so living right where you take classes can be a huge help. Proximity also makes it easier to be involved with clubs, sports and everything else that goes on here at Hilbert.
Not ready to worry about all the maintenance, utilities, groceries, and responsibilities that often comes with living on your own? On campus, it’s all taken care of for you.
Many of our students form lasting friendships that they stick with through the rest of college starting in their freshmen residence hall. Living on campus provides a tight-knit community of people that includes myriads of opportunities for expansion.
Living with a diverse group of people also expands your social knowledge outside of the classroom. You have a chance to get to know students from all over the country and people with incredibly varied life experiences.
Some key highlights of living on campus include:
Our apartment-style residence halls (for upperclassmen and transfer students) have:
Our dining hall on campus provides social interaction with your classmates, whether you choose to eat, hang out, take study breaks, or just relax. Our staff provides delicious food in the comfort and convenience of a newly remodeled atmosphere designed for students.
