Residential Life

Philosophy

The Office of Residential Life provides a residential experience that supports the academic and personal development, and co-curricular experiences of students. We regard students as maturing individuals and expect them to accept responsibility for their academic, personal, and social lives. 

Mission

The Office of Residential Life supports students as they navigate the challenges and opportunities presented by community living experiences. We provide multiple housing options and serve as a resource for students. We foster personal development and accountability by implementing the Residential Education Model, maintaining community standards, and intentionally training and mentoring Resident and Unit Assistants. 

Housing Policies

All students residing in on-campus residence halls or apartments are expected to abide by the housing rules and regulations published on the Office of Residential Life website. The policies can be found here: http://www.skidmore.edu/reslife/docs/Housing_Process_Policies-_16-17.pdf.
