Since 1986, CAS's Housing and Residential Life Programs Standards (HRLP) have
provided student affairs professionals with practical understanding of this far-reaching and complex functional area, ultimately, helping institutions create safe and holistic community for students.
The newly released functional area resource paper (FARP) is an effort to demonstrate how our standards can be used in diverse contexts. This resource focuses on the various uses that can be applied in the housing and residence life area, certainly one of the most expansive and comprehensive functions in higher education. Housing and residential life intersects with so many parts of a campus community. It is where students may live and learn, participate in activities and events, and eat and socialize.
