Welcome to The Office of Residence Life
Welcome Home to JMU! The Office of Residence Life is delighted that you’ll be making your home with us this year.
The foundation for the services we offer is rooted in the following values:
- Supportive transition to the JMU community
- Academic achievement
- Providing positive learning experiences
- Providing excellent service and accommodation
We recognize that our greatest contribution to your education is involving you in the development and implementation of these services. We expect you to engage with university life. ORL is fully committed to the ideals outlined in the Madison Way statement, and we strive throughout the year to integrate the meaning of this statement into all our community has to offer.
We expect that each resident will do the same, thus creating and maintaining a learning-centered community filled with respect for one another, consideration for our earth, hope for our future, and of course, sprinkled with just the appropriate amount of fun!
Join us for a great, safe, and educational year. I promise it will be unforgettable.
