Benefits of Living On-Campus 

Have Your Student Join Our Hofstra Residential Community! 

Living on campus can provide a host of benefits to your student in a variety of areas. Campus residents tend to have higher GPA’s, are more likely to graduate on time, show increased satisfaction with the University and its resources, and are more likely to take advantage of student services and campus amenities and events.

Hello Hofstra families! Don’t forget that all commuting students who have lockers must have them cleaned out by May 22nd, 2017. If you do not remove your possessions from your locker then they are subject to removal and disposal by Hofstra. Also, a reminder that all resident students must be moved out by 9am on May 20th, 2017.


For all of our graduating students, commencement is May 21st! Do not forget to pick up your commencement attire and tickets in the lower level of the Hofstra Bookstore. Academic attire pickup is Wednesday-Thursday, May 17 and 18, 10 a.m.-8 p.m., Friday, May 19, 10 a.m-5 p.m., and an hour before the ceremony on Sunday, May 21, at the Mack Physical Education Center (where you will be lining up).

The Office of Parent and Family Programs would like to extend our most sincere congratulations to all of the Hofstra graduates. We are confident that you all will do great things in your post-Hofstra endeavors and we wish you all good luck!
