Residential Life and Education

Welcome to Doane University's Office of Residential Life and Education!
Here you will find all the information you need to plan your student housing experience. Studies have shown that students who live on campus perform better academically, engage more socially and are more likely to graduate than students who do not have the experience. Within our halls, you’ll have an engaging and dynamic experience that will help propel you toward success. Additionally, our remarkably talented professional and student team members will be there to help guide you and maximize your Doane experience!

If you have a guest who will be staying with you on campus please complete this guest form.
