There are numerous benefits to living on campus including convenience, opportunities to develop life-long friendships, and to live in an environment that fosters the educational and personal growth of students. The mission of the Residential Life Coordinators is to provide residential students a living environment that offers support and assistance to maximize their educational opportunities. Our goal is to offer residential facilities, programs and services that enhance student learning and support student success.
While living in an environment that promotes safety, students also benefit from the opportunity to learn about other cultures and lifestyles, form lifelong friendships and make lasting memories.
The convenience of living on campus provides students easy access to numerous campus resources such as faculty and academic advisors, the library, computer labs, the dining hall, recreational facilities, and student organizations. Additionally, students have the opportunity to interact with the CASC faculty outside the classroom by participating in a variety of campus-wide and residential programs.
The benefits of on-campus living can also be measured quantitatively. Students who live in the residence halls vs. commuting to campus do better academically and also are more likely to remain enrolled. Carl Albert State College provides approximately 300 students the opportunity to experience the unique academic and social environment of on-campus living through the Scholars Center, Residential Program Housing, and Athletic Housing. Residential students are a vital part of the CASC community and are encouraged to take advantage of college activities, organizations and facilities.
A $75.00 non-refundable housing deposit/maintenance fee will be required and a CASC Housing and Meals Contract will be issued to students. All CASC Residential Housing assignments are made on a first-come, first-served basis according to the date the $75.00 non-refundable maintenance fee is received. Please be aware that our Residential Housing reaches maximum occupancy. You will be contacted by the Residential Life Coordinator concerning the status of your housing application.
