Why is it Free?

ResLife Portal was initially built in 2007 based upon first-hand experience in residence life at a Division I university campus. Since 2007, the mission of ResLife Portal continues to be focused on assisting residence life staff at colleges and universities to dynamically track programming effectiveness, staff member performance expectations, and effective communication.

We understand that budgets can be tight. More importantly, we have seen the value created for colleges and universities from using ResLife Portal. We wanted to make a selection of capabilities within our system available to any college or university. The advertisements within the ResLife Portal Free Edition exist since we still have bills to pay (we earn a fraction of a penny on each advertisement click).

Simply put: it's a way for our company to give back to the community, as an in-kind gift.
