Because the residential experience so strongly supports the mission of APU, all traditional undergraduate students are required to live in campus housing for their freshman and sophomore years. Studies have shown that students who live in campus housing perform better academically, are more likely to graduate, and are generally more satisfied with their college experience than those who live off campus or commute. Living in a Residence Life community with peers, having quick access to campus resources, and enjoying the opportunity to further develop personally and academically are just a few reasons why living in campus housing is fundamental for success as a freshman or sophomore at APU.
Sophomores must choose one of the following options:
Request for Campus Housing Assignment
