The Office of Residence Life is committed to creating an environment in the residence halls that encourages academic excellence, social competence, independence, and a sense of community living. A well-trained staff, including 2 Hall Directors and 14 Resident Assistants, provides programming, guidance, and support.


The Office of Residence Life at Defiance College is committed to creating a safe and inclusive environment for all students of diverse backgrounds, including but not limited to: race, culture, nationality, ethnicity, religion, ideas, beliefs, geographic origin, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity and expression, ability, age, and veteran status. We recognize that this commitment to diversity and inclusion is a responsibility for everyone. By embracing people with different perspectives, values, and backgrounds we enhance how we view the world. We strongly believe learning not only happens in the classroom but outside the classroom, and we resolve to foster a healthy environment for that learning.
