ORBIS resident students live on the exciting new Global Diversity floor in Towers Living-Learning Center, along with students in NARRATIO and a number of Duquesne's international students. ORBIS students don't need to apply to live on the Global Diversity floor; all ORBIS students who live on campus get on without having to apply.
