Residence Life

At Cornerstone University, we do residence life differently. During your four years at Cornerstone, you’ll become fully integrated into campus life through formative experiences like Terra Firma and campus-wide events like chapel. These experiences are meant to transform you from the inside out and inspire you to engage with your roommates and friends in every aspect of life.

Pickitt Hall

One of the longest-standing residence halls on campus, Pickitt Hall is typically home to first-year women on campus. The community-style halls are designed for freshmen to become integrated into campus life and live intentionally with one another. Pickitt has several annual traditions like Powderpuff and the Pickitt Talent Show.

Quincer Hall

Quincer Hall is one of the longest-standing residence halls on campus and is affectionately called “the Q” for short. Quincer is typically home to first-year men on campus. The Q is known for traditions like Quincer Fall Smash—a fall-themed dorm event—and also for occasionally serenading its sister dorm, Pickitt.
