Residence Halls

Our residence halls are truly an extension of the college classroom, and they give students the opportunity to participate in community development, develop better people skills and create lifelong friendships. So where exactly will you unpack all your stuff?

About Our Residence Halls

At Rose-Hulman, all freshmen are required to live on campus, but many of our upperclassmen choose to stay in the residence halls as well.

Why live on campus? It’s incredibly easy to access campus resources such as the library, classrooms, food services and athletic facilities. As a member of the Rose-Hulman community, you’ll be surrounded by students taking the same classes as you, and as a result, are likely facing many of the same challenges.

Upperclassmen are nearby and will be able to provide assistance with homework. If you live on campus, you will also have fewer distractions since everything is provided for you here. Focus is key to success at Rose-Hulman.

But most of all, living on campus is fun! You will make lifelong friends and have stories you’ll remember forever.
