Residential Life

Approximately 300 students make their homes in one of the College's four residence halls. Located just around the corner from the Public Gardens and Boston Common, students reside in elegant, 1900's "brownstone" townhouses with all the comforts of home. The turn of the century residence halls have modern amenities such as security systems, common areas with refrigerators and microwaves, making the halls a comfortable place to study, relax, or just hang out with friends.

While each living area is unique, each fosters an environment that is conducive to learning. Professional staff and student leaders live and work in each residence hall. Recreational activities, leadership opportunities, referrals to support services, and a listening ear are just a few of the benefits of living on campus.

Why Live on Campus?
  • Living on campus with Housing and Residential Life puts you in the center of the Fisher College community. 
  • Research indicates that living on campus is one of the strongest influences on successful completion of an undergraduate degree.
  • Our experience has been that off-campus living is about accommodations. Off-campus vendors are strictly in the business of renting accommodations, though many have recently attempted to mimic on-campus offerings without the same results. Housing and Residential Life is committed to creating a student-centered environment that supports both personal and academic development.
  • Professional staff and student leaders live and work in each residence hall. Recreational activities, leadership opportunities, referrals to support services, and a listening ear are just a few benefits of living on campus.
