Residence Life

Mission Statement

The mission of Lincoln University’s Office of Residence Life is to provide a diversified educationally stimulating living environment where students explore their own development and positively contribute to a global society.

We strive to provide residents with valuable support and resources, as well as enriching activities and programs that serve to develop a sense of community, provide opportunities for learning in a clear, attractive, well-maintained, safe, and comfortable residence hall while promoting the University’s missions.

Lincoln University's Residence Life programs and services create a positive environment that actively engages students in the collegiate experience and help to build school spirit, character, and morale throughout the year while residing in the residence halls.


The Office of Residence Life at Lincoln University seeks to create an intentional learning environment in the residence halls that create a bridge to compliment classroom education and real world experiences.



Living on campus brings countless opportunities to your doorstep. With a new world of neighbors you can form close, lasting friendships with fellow students who share your interests. Our on-campus residences are designed to make gathering, studying, and socializing convenient. Everything you need is nearby.

The Office of Residence Life assists students in all aspects of their on-campus living experience. This includes supervision of the residence hall staff, oversight of university policies and procedures related to campus housing. The Residence Life staff is committed to making your on-campus experience both an enjoyable experience and one of personal development. If you need assistance, please call 484-365-7254 or email
