Housing & Recreation Department

The Housing & Recreation Department features two (2) traditional style residential facilities, which provides accommodations for approximately 288 students. In addition, the Housing & Recreation Department supervises, organizes and facilitates recreational activities, intramurals and the SIPI Wellness Center.
