Residence Life

Welcome Students

The Office of Residence Life and Education works hard to provide Park students with a premier living experience, as part of the residential requirement for single students under the age of 21 living on campus. Navigate the links for each complex and explore the amenities, facilities, and all Park University has to offer our residential students.

Students please complete your application and sign your contract through eRezlife. The $150 housing deposit is required to be paid through your MyPark account.

A housing waiver may be requested for the following reasons:

  • Student is living with their parents, legal guardians or dependent children within a 50-mile radius of campus OR
  • Student has completed 58 or more credit hours prior to their first semester of attendance at Park University.

Park University’s housing application is available through eRezlife. Students may log in with their Park ID email and password. The application will provide the Residence Life staff with your contact information and roommate and living preferences. If you have already applied but would like to change any of your information (hall, roommate, etc.), email

Also in the eRezlife system, students will sign the Housing Contract. Be sure to review the housing contract thoroughly before submitting. All students will be held to the terms and conditions of the contract, once moving in.

Additionally, you may reference a PDF copy of the contract text here.
