Residential Life

Become part of our vibrant community.


About Us

The Office of Residential Life is responsible for the administration of—and student life in—the residence halls on campus at Mount Holyoke.

Our Purpose

To partner with Mount Holyoke College students in creating and engaging in inclusive, compassionate and authentic communities.

Our approach

The Office of Residential Life supports the academic mission of the College by providing a residential environment for learning that respects and appreciates individual differences and promotes a sense of community. The office is respectful, supportive and helpful to students as they navigate through their residential experience, even when the answer they receive is disappointing. The office is dedicated to supporting students as they progress through their college years.
