Residence Life & Housing

Living at 51СƳ is a once-in-a-lifetime experience — just ask any of our current students. (Many of them would tell you they never want to leave.) 

As a residential college in which 87 percent of students live on campus, 51СƳ promotes a multidimensional learning experience that transcends classroom studies. All first-year students live on campus and participate in our unique Montserrat living/learning program. Each of our 11 coed residence halls features comfortable, fully networked spaces for living, learning, and socializing.

Student resident assistants develop a culture of belonging through various activities that bring the residence hall together, such as field trips to Boston and outdoor barbecues. In turn, our students take advantage of opportunities to explore their interests and share their talents through student groups and organizations. The result is an intimate campus and a student body that feels like a second family.
