Residence Halls at Sunrise

Housing at SRU

Slippery Rock University gives you a fun, friendly and safe living environment.


As of Friday, March 27th at 7 p.m. all scheduled move outs will be completed. Students who were approved to stay have been relocated for the remainder of the term. The Housing staff will not be on site for assistance during the majority of regular business hours due to the majority of staff working from home. If assistance is needed, please leave a message at 724.738.2082 and our staff will return the call ASAP.

Do not travel to campus to retrieve items until you have spoke with a staff member and made advance arrangements. Our staff is working on a process to accommodate those who could not move, or left items behind. That update will be sent via SRU email when a step by step process is developed.
