Facilities and Resources
At Post, we've learned that students benefit from living with others who have similar goals and interests. That's why we offer four themed residence halls. Each has a peer educator who organizes activities, tutoring programs, etc. For first year students, it's particularly helpful to live with a group of peers who share your interests. The result for so many of our students: life-long friendships and stronger academic performance.
Post University also offers a vast number of both academic and campus support services to all of our students. These services are offered to all students free of charge.
