Learning at Bluffton goes beyond the traditional classroom. We have student opportunities for every interest.

Residence life

Live in community. Thrive in relationships. You'll feel a sense of independence but always find support and assistance in residence halls, student centers and other campus services.


As a residential student, you will form life-long friendships and experience a unique sense of community based on respect.


The University Event Complex is the social, recreational, informational and community center of campus. Work out, get your mail and eat dinner!


At Bluffton, you’ll feel safe and supported by the many services and programs we have in place on our campus.



 It doesn't just happen in the classroom. That’s why we offer a range of artistic and cultural events through Arts at Bluffton to supplement classroom learning and experiential learning through residence life and athletics.
