Welcome to the Residential Education and Services (RES) webpage. We hope this webpage will introduce you to the services we offer, inform you about the benefits of living on campus, and provide the necessary forms and paperwork. RES is dedicated to assisting our students in their holistic development and supporting them in becoming wise, honorable, and cultivated citizens. If you do not find what you need here, please feel free to contact the RES Office at (949) 214-3052 or email us at RES@cui.edu.
The Residential Education and Services department at Concordia University works within the mission of the university to meet the many needs of students living in our Residence Halls. We empower students to make the most of their educational experiences by supporting them and offering opportunities to engage in learning, service, and leadership.
The college years are full of many challenges and opportunities for growth. As a Residential Education department, one of the most basic needs we work to meet is that of providing a healthy and safe place for students to live, but living on campus at Concordia is more than just a place to lay your head at night. Our primary purpose is to assist students in their personal and communal growth and development. This goal is accomplished through a variety of avenues. The Resident Assistants and Professional Staff members are here to serve our students, to help you connect with other students, the University, and the world. It is our desire for every student to find their unique “home” here at Concordia University.
Your time living in the Residence Halls can be as fulfilling as you choose to make it. We encourage you to get to know your neighbors by participating in hall and building activities. If you love more intentional community living, check out or Living Learning Communities. We offer an on-campus gym (CU Active) and a bike rental program (CU Rides) to help you maintain a healthy lifestyle and explore the Orange County area. We provide the opportunities, but your engagement with the community is entirely up to you. We hope you make the most of it.
We are glad to have you here!
