There are two examples for which I am looking for the right preposition:

  1. Students who live in/on/at the campus residences.
  2. Poor internet connection in/on/at the campus residences.

I know we say "to live on campus". But, I can not find any information for this specific examples.

For both examples either in or at would work but on is, as you suspected, wrong. I would prefer in for the first example

Students who live in the campus residences

although it is common to speak of living at a particular address, the UK PM lives at 10 Downing Street.

For the second example I cannot see any reason to prefer one over the other.
