Residence Life

Olin College wishes to provide a safe and supportive environment that promotes academic success, personal development, and involvement in campus life. The Residence Life team supports the College’s commitment to revolutionize engineering education by creating a seamless connection between experiences inside the classroom and life in the residence halls. Living in Olin student housing is a privilege. Students living in student housing are responsible for complying with Olin policies and for providing responsible stewardship and encouraging a spirit of service to each other in an effort to further this commitment and achieve equitable rights and access within our residential community. A student’s adherence to this responsibility is required to retain the privilege of on-campus residency.

Policies governing behavior within the residence halls are based on the principle that the exercise of one person’s rights must not infringe upon the exercise of another’s rights in the ordinary course of daily living. Each student is expected to behave in a manner that respects and considers the rights of others in the college community.


Student Residency Requirement

All students are required to live on campus.  Exemptions may be approved by the Dean of the College, please send requests to live off campus via email.
