For their first two years at SMU, our students live on campus in 11 Residential Commons where they often learn as much about themselves as they do about one another.

Sharing a living space with people from all majors and a diversity of identities can be both challenging and exhilarating. A roommate may evolve into a future business ally. A new opportunity can unlock hidden potential. Even baking cookies together can forge lasting bonds as friends become family.
