Campus Life

Housing

Classes are awesome, but living on-campus is an educational experience, too. You’ll learn what it means to be part of a diverse community focused on a singular goal—to become the smartest, most accomplished, most compassionate person you can imagine.

When you’re ready to reserve your room for the upcoming semester, we’ll do our best to honor your housing preference. Room assignments and roommate contact information are generally available on your student WebAdvisor account after July 1.

Your mother doesn’t live here.

But the Resident Assistant assigned to your hall keeps general order and can help resolve any issues that might arise. Doing the laundry and dishes is up to you.

The RA’s job is to build a community of respect within the residence halls by developing individual relationships and group programming. The RAs understand the College’s mission and, guided by the Honor Code, are instrumental in shaping and maintaining community standards.

Off-campus housing.

All first- and second-year students must live on campus, unless your permanent home is nearby. Juniors and seniors in good academic and social standing may apply to the Residence Life Office for permission to live off-campus.
