Residency Requirement

Springfield College is a residential college committed to the belief that there are numerous benefits to living on campus. Students benefit from the residential experience, as it is an integral part of the education of the whole person at the College. For this reason, all full-time undergraduate students are required to live on campus for a minimum of three years unless the student:

  • Is 23 years of age or older
  • Is married
  • Has dependent child
  • Has been a veteran of at least two years on active military duty
  • Is planning to live at home with a parent(s) or legal guardian and that home is within a 60 minute drive to the College campus
  • Has lived on campus for three years at Springfield College or another college

*Students who meet one of the above criteria are required to submit a commuter status application to the director of the Office of Housing & Residence Life. Approved students will have their status recorded by the College.

In most of the halls, students live in double rooms. In coed halls, students of the same sex occupy an entire floor or wing. Each residence hall has at least one common kitchen where students may cook or reheat food and several lounges for studying and relaxing.

Rooms

All furniture in the room at check in must remain in the room throughout the year.

Rooms include:

  • Shades or blinds (except for Gulick Hall)
  • Wireless Internet
  • Extra-long (80”) twin-sized bed with a height of at least six to eight inches above the floor, a dresser, a desk, a desk chair, and closet space for each student
  • Cable television hookup, computer network access (which includes both Ethernet and wireless options)

Please Note:

  • Halogen lamps are not allowed in student rooms as they pose a serious fire hazard.
  • Microwaves are also not allowed in student rooms due to fire and safety regulations. All traditional halls and apartments have kitchens that are equipped with a microwave for students’ use.
