Our Mission

The Office of Residential Life (ORL) seeks to establish an enriching residential experience that supports the Juniata mission. From a programmatic and facilities standpoint, our philosophy is to provide a safe and inclusive environment that fosters a well-rounded collegiate experience. ORL recognizes the importance of providing reasonable accommodations, in our housing policies and practices, when necessary for individuals with disabilities to allow them to fully participate in campus living. We encourage our staff to use active and passive programming to building a community that supports growth, leadership, and academic excellence. As an educational institution with a predominately residential population, we believe that  it is our responsibility to compliment the learning that takes place in the classroom.
