American University's residence halls are dynamic communities that promote student learning in a fun and affirming atmosphere. Although each of our buildings have unique features and special communities, they are all designed to promote student success. Studies show that students living in residence halls perform better academically and participate more fully in campus life.

Each floor of our residence halls has an upper-class student, known as a Resident Assistant (RA), that engages students in learning opportunities and programs, provides support in mediating conflicts, and helps with transition and other student issues. Additionally, each building has a live-in, full-time, Masters Degree-level professional known as a Resident Director (RD). The Resident Director provides additional support to students and leads in the planning of learning opportunities for the entire building.

Our rooms are all furnished with a full complement of furniture and provide cable television, and wired and wireless internet access. Additionally, each has access to common floor lounges and kitchen facilities.
