1st Year Residence & Dining Facilities

The UMass Dartmouth campus has evolved from a purely commuter school at its founding to a residential campus that houses approximately 50 percent of its full-time undergraduate students as well as some graduate and law students.

In July 2018, the UMass Board of Trustees approved a $133.9 million plan for UMass Dartmouth that includes new first-year residence halls and a dining facility. The expected completion date is fall 2020.
