Live, learn, experience life
You will enjoy living steps away from your classes, research labs, the Library, the Dining Hall, and our excellent athletics facilities.
We offer opportunities for students to grow in areas of self-awareness and life skills, develop positive relationships with others, and promote student involvement in the residence and campus community. Residence also partners with many departments on campus to provide workshops, community outreach opportunities, academic support, and leadership initiatives.
We also organize a wide range of social events so you can easily meet new people and enjoy your time in residence.
Be part of the residence community
Embarking on a new chapter in life, especially when living on your own for the first time, can take some getting used to. Carleton’s award-winning Residence Life program has been designed to help with your transition so you can reach your academic and personal goals. Students in residence will have the opportunity to meet people from around the world, and make friendships that last a lifetime.
