  • Regis Hall - Regis Hall is a residential facility designed with single occupancy rooms and community bathrooms. Located on the Ashford University Clinton Campus, Regis is connected to the main classroom building.

As a student living in one of our residence halls, you’ll have access to study lounges and recreation areas. The small environment makes it easy to get to know your fellow students and faculty. In fact, many students choose Ashford simply for that reason.
