A residential liberal arts community
98 percent of students live in our 23 residence halls, known as houses, all within a five-minute walk of anywhere on campus.

Welcome to living on campus! A residential campus provides the opportunity for students to continually refine and apply their learning outside of the classroom. We believe the residence halls are the largest learning labs you will find on campus. Through engaging in the opportunities available at Connecticut College students can expect to gain valuable life skills in preparation for life beyond college. The work of the REAL office is driven by our mission, guiding principles and student learning outcomes.
The mission of the Residential Education and Living (REAL) Office is to foster responsible citizenship by cultivating safe, inclusive communities that advance learning in and outside of the classroom.
The residential community at Connecticut College is a space where we affirm and value the uniqueness and dignity we each hold, no matter our race, socioeconomic status, sex, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, ability, nationality, or age. This commitment goes beyond tolerance and transforms into action.
We will create communities where open dialogue around identity development, social justice, and equity and inclusion are normalized in order to support community members in their examination of their biases and privileges. We will work towards naming, confronting, and dismantling institutionalized systems of oppression based on identity. We will create communities free from harassment, where differences are seen as opportunities for exploration, and where individual opinions are supported and respected. When these opinions hurt or challenge another’s inherent humanity, worth or dignity we will act with courage, compassion, and integrity to ensure the safety and wellbeing of each member of our community.
Change is a community effort. Please join us in creating the community we envision.
