Residential Living

On-campus living offers a wide range of experiences for all students. At Rio, you can become part of our residential communities and build lifelong connections with fellow students. First year housing includes Holzer Hall, for males, and Davis Hall, for females. Upperclassmen reside in Wellness Hall. Gender-inclusive housing is also available. Our residential communities are governed by undergraduate Resident Assistants with each building supervised by a Head Resident Assistant. The Residence Life staff assist in the daily life of our students.

The Total Living plan includes both room and board. Our residence halls include standard amenities like a furnished double occupancy room, high-speed internet access, free on-site laundry, and a communal lounge area perfect for gathering with friends. Room upgrades, such as single rooms, are also available for students who prefer a private room. Our meal plans include up to 19 meals per week in our all-you-can-eat dining facility “The Marketplace”.
