Residence Life participates in the educational mission of Graceland University by creating safe, organized, and supportive residential learning communities, which are ideal for holistic student development and enhancing students’ sense of belongingness.

Grounded in the value of “The Worth of All Persons", our inclusive House System, robust Residential Living Curriculum, and intentional Guide to Community Living cultivate a culture where students can discern who they are called to be and realize their potential for meaningful and productive lives.
