Living on campus

Live on campus—and join more than half of our students who are making the most of their university experience:

  • enjoy new independence
  • get to know lots of people
  • make your own decisions

As a first-year student, you'll move into a "quad" of residence halls designed exclusively for you. There are special programs to guide you through the year, with professional staff and student resident assistants (RAs) to help with questions and concerns.

UMass Dartmouth offers several residential complexes and a variety of living arrangements, including apartment-style living in our newest complex. Other residence halls are designed primarily for sophomores, juniors, and seniors.

There are a variety of room configurations, from the traditional double-corridor style to a suite-style design. Most rooms for first-year students are doubles. All residence areas offer laundries, mailboxes, lounges for group gatherings, areas for study groups, and more. Spots for recreation—such as tennis and basketball courts—are nearby.

Students living on campus eat in the "Rez," and freshmen can select from one of several different meal plans.

Plan a campus visit soon—tour the residence halls and get a better idea of campus life here at UMass Dartmouth.

Enrolling students will receive housing information in the mail in May.
