Our 23 different residence houses are living and learning communities filled with personality. Each one has its own unique character and set of features, and some even have themes. There are no fraternities or sororities at Connecticut College, and nearly all (98 percent) students live on campus.

New students live in doubles, triples and quads and will be assigned a room (and a roommate or roommates) in late July. Sophomores, juniors and seniors typically live in doubles or singles. Students of all years live in the residence houses spread throughout our oval-shaped campus.

Connecticut College's residence house restrooms are gender-inclusive, meaning that they can be used by students of any sex or gender.
