Beyond the Classroom

Being part of a campus community is like being part of a large family. While we may not all get a chance to eat dinner together, campus life brings us together.

Resident students can choose from single rooms to apartment style living. All three residence halls feature computer stations, game rooms, wifi and 24-hour security.

The dining hall in the Granito Center always seems to be the hub of campus activity (a lot like your kitchen at home). Choose from three different meal plans to fit your budget (plus one just for commuter students).

Student-athlete or just a sports fan? Either way, Dominican University athletes play on 14 Division II varsity teams and have won numerous conference championships. Come out and play, or just cheer the Chargers on to victory.

Students in the city

Just 20 minutes from the excitement of the city that never sleeps. Take in a ball game, visit a museum, or take advantage of some of the country’s best internship opportunities. New York City is so close; it might as well be our backyard!

Serving Others is Part of Our DNA

Personal success cannot be measured without measuring our impact on improving the lives of others. Dominican University and community service go hand in hand. Our goal is for every student to develop service to others as a life-long value.
