Residence Life

Approximately 90 percent of Endicott students live in 30 on-campus residence halls and one off-campus site. Architectural styles on campus include converted estate properties; quaint houses; traditional, community-based residence halls; townhouses; modern suite style construction, some offering partial and full kitchen facilities; and apartments. Occupancy in the buildings range from five to 300.

Endicott has a strong commitment to community development, first-year transition to college life, and the value of living in a community with others. Students are encouraged to avail themselves of all that residence life has to offer - from building choices and roommate selection, to programming and leadership opportunities.

For most students, the group living experience is an exciting and important part of personal growth during their college years. The first-year environment is an integral part in their success, and our first-year communities have a distinctive set of values and qualities that support individual growth and development.

To assist students in making the most of their residential experience, most halls are staffed by trained, live-in residence directors, assistant residence directors, and undergraduate students called resident assistants. These staff members, in conjunction with the director of residence life, the associate director of residence life, the coordinator of housing, the director of residence operations, and the administrative assistant, are available to assist students in adjusting to college life, to serve as campus resources and provide referrals, and to enhance the residence hall experience. The Office of Residence Life works closely with academics, athletics, student affairs, public safety, and other departments to create a positive, transitional environment for students.

Resident students may participate in residence hall governance through election to hall councils and/or the Residence Hall Association (RHA). Members of these organizations have input into reviewing and recommending residential policies and procedures, while also creating fun and engaging programming.

These programs have been established at the College to provide each student with the opportunity for a rewarding campus experience. The residential experience is one that can truly enhance the student’s capacity to grow, learn, and share in a community of people - the best of college life!y enhance the student’s opportunity to grow, learn and share in a community of people- the best of college life!
