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 Orientation Week 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.
Created for Community
At Cornerstone, we encourage each student to become involved in our community. You’ll see examples of this everywhere you look on campus—students having lunch with their professors, greeting each other as they walk to class and hosting spontaneous nights of worship in their residence halls. Here, a Christ-centered community is crucial to everything we do.
One of the longest-standing residence halls on campus, Pickitt Hall is typically home to first-year women on campus.

Pickitt has several annual traditions like Powderpuff and the Pickitt Talent Show.

Central Hall is the newest residence hall on campus, completed in 2013. Residents in Central Hall have a unique perspective of De Witt baseball field—some can look right out their window to watch a game. Central Hall is typically home to sophomores, juniors, and transfer students.
Cook & Van Osdel Halls
