Director's Welcome

The Office of Residence Life and Housing (ORLH) at Morgan State University supports and is an integral part of the educational and social development of our students. Additionally, we provide a safe and comfortable living environment that enhances the academic success and achievements of our students.

At Morgan State University, students who are a part of the residential community are afforded a variety of opportunities for personal growth and development. We accomplish this through both structured and informal programs, and leadership opportunities throughout the academic year.

The term "residence hall" is a source of pride for those who work in The Office of Residence Life & Housing. It is based on the idea that in-class instruction is only a part of the college student's academic experience. Research has shown that 60% of a college student's time is spent outside of the classroom.

The foundation of our Residence Life program is student academic success. We provide an educational setting that integrates classroom and interpersonal development into a holistic learning experience. We also provide a living-learning environment that is conducive to the educational growth and personal development of the student.

We seek to build a community that inspires life experiences, citizenship and personal growth. It is important to us that we realize our stake in the development of tomorrow's leaders.

Student success is our foundation.

Sincerely,
Douglas Gwynn
Director, Residence Life
