Student Life

Live your way up the hill.

Downtown to the top of the hill. Lower campus to upper campus. From your first year to your last, Bloomsburg is here to help you have the best experience possible, wherever you wish to live it.

Move on in. Student housing is always available for first-year and transfer students, making college life easier from the start.

Learn and live. Learning Communities are home to Huskies with shared academic paths, so they can all climb together.

Stretch your legs. When you're ready for the responsibilities and rewards of living off campus, you'll find plenty of eclectic options with university affiliates or others in town.

Food for every comfort level. Face it: you've got to eat. And here, we take your hunger — and your healthy dietary needs — seriously. It starts with our flagship dining location, Scranton Commons, and goes upward to Monty's, a cafe-style spot with a view, situated nicely on upper campus. Busy? Then it's to the Husky Lounge we go for overstuffed wraps, fresh bagels and made-from-scratch soups. On the go? There's always Qdoba, Steak 'n Shake, Subway, Chik-fil-A and Starbucks, as well as select lobby kiosks and outside food carts for meals really on the move.

Put your spare time to the test.

There are no idle moments here. You're either pushing yourself into new academic territory or making memories with your fellow Huskies. There are more than 250 clubs and organizations for you to consider.

A few ways to take action.

  • Sports — test your mettle or simply have fun in the heat of intramural competition or square off against our rivals in some of our active club teams.
  • Program Board — have a say and a hand in shaping some of the campus's biggest events, such as live entertainment and weekend activities.
  • Quest — discover the extrovert in yourself through our outdoor adventure program that teaches you leadership at the helm of a kayak, along hiking trails, and screaming down our upper campus zipline.
  • Center for Leadership and Engagement — grow, develop, and get involved with the CLE that connects you with leadership opportunities to match all your interests, making it both intentional and fun.
  • Community Government Association — gain hands-on leadership experience by overseeing the operation of on-campus housing, retail, and activities.
  • Fitness Workout — no more excuses thanks to our expansive Student Recreation Center that features an indoor track, racquetball courts, dance studio, and about everything imaginable in strength and cardio equipment.
