Housing and Residence Life


On behalf of the Department of Housing and Residence Life, we are honored to have you bring your unique skills, talents, and gifts to the University of Dayton and we are excited for the opportunity to partner with you as you contribute to the growth and development of our residential community. In August 2014, Housing and Residence Life launched AVIATE, A Vision for Integrated, Applied and Transformative Education. AVIATE is the integration of the department’s residential curriculum and the assignments process for returning students. Students accumulate PATH (Points Accumulated Toward Housing) credit either by participating in Engagement Opportunities offered in the curriculum, by attending campus partner Engagement Opportunities that have been approved by AVIATE and reflect the department's learning goals, or by engaging in Learning in Action. A student’s PATH credit, in turn, determines their priority in attaining their desired housing. Living in University housing affords you the opportunity to clarify your personal values, mediate conflict, learn about cultures and experiences different than your own and collaborate with fellow community members to identify problems and develop solutions to serve the common good.
