Residence Life



The Residence Life Program is committed to providing a safe and healthy living environment that is supportive of a student’s academic pursuits while contributing to personal growth.

Our main campus is located in the four corners area nestled in the beautiful Chuska Mountain Range in rural Northeastern Arizona. Diné College provides nine residential halls, accommodating a maximum of 251 vacancies per semester for students at the main campus in Tsaile.
