A Super Safe Learning and Living Environment

We understand that all parents want first and foremost to keep their sons and daughters safe while they attend college, particularly when they are studying in a distant land. HU takes student security seriously. We have one hall that is female/women-only. Our female/women only hall does allow male visitors into the hall though males are not allowed in the rooms. Students share a room with a day bed, desks, and closets but sleep in our sleeping rooms. A bedroom is a large air-conditioned room with bunk-beds, where residents sleep.  That hall is not pictured below.  The remainder of our students live in our college apartments in one of our two housing locations: our Residences On Market apartments (located directly across from the university’s Academic Center) and our Market View Place apartments (located about a block from the Academic Center). Both locations are outfitted with card-activated security systems and overseen by fully trained staff.

Apartments are beautiful, modern and spacious. Each suite includes a full kitchen equipped with the latest appliances.  Apartments are fully furnished and include basic utilities and Wi-Fi Internet service. Cable TV is also available. Most apartments house two or four students, but a few are set up to accommodate three.

Residence Fun

You’ll do more than study and sleep in your campus apartment. There are also events like The Roommate Game that’s a lot like Family Feud only between roommates, cooking on a budget classes, Roommate Roasts, and endless spur-of-the-moment outings that can involve a few friends or everyone in the residences.
