Residence Life

Approximately 85 percent of Endicott students live on campus in 31 residence halls. Each residence hall offers students a unique opportunity depending on their lifestyles. Residential opportunities include modern, community-based residence halls, converted estate properties, suite style, suite style with partial and full kitchen facilities, and townhouse facilities. With residence halls that can accommodate students ranging in number from 5 to 300 the Residence Life program offers a special experience to the resident student.

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

For most new students, the group living experience and even the experience of having roommates 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 retention during the next four years of their college career. These living/learning communities have a distinctive set of values and qualities that support individual growth and development. These values emerge from and reinforce the finest traditions and heritage of the College. The emphasis at Endicott is on community development and individual responsibility.

To assist you in making the most of your residence experience, most halls are staffed by trained, live-in Residence Directors, Assistant Residence Directors, and undergraduate students called Resident Assistants. These members of Residence Life in conjunction with the Director, Assistant Director of Residence Life, and Adminsitrative Assistant are available to assist you in adjusting to college life, to serve as campus resources and provide referrals, and to enhance your residence hall experience. The Office of Residence Life works closely with Academics, Athletics, Student Affairs, and other departments to create a positive transitional environment for students.

Resident students have the opportunity to participate in residence hall governance issues by being elected to Hall Council and/or Residence Hall Association (RHA). Through these organizations students 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 residence experience is one that can truly enhance the student’s opportunity to grow, learn and share in a community of people- the best of college life!
