More than just a bed.
Living on campus is a wonderful experience for our students and our communities. We take pride in focusing on student development both inside and outside the classroom. Through departmental programs like the Panther Success Initiative, we help students in their personal, academic, and professional development.
Through organizations like hall council, the National Residence Hall Honorary, or the Residence Hall Association, our caring and dedicated team of professional and student staff members are always available to help students.
At Eastern, we are all in on your success. When you live with us on campus, be assured we care about you as a member of the Panther Family.

Many EIU students have made a tradition of the midweek pilgrimage to Taylor Hall for Grilled Cheese Wednesdays! For them, a week isn't complete without a sandwich or two and perhaps a bowl of tomato soup on the side.
Every year each residence hall builds a boat from duct tape and cardboard and race across the Campus Pond as a part of ROCFest. Saving up scraps of cardboard for this event starts at the beginning of the semester!
