Residence Halls
Inclusion, compassion and authenticity are the foundations of our residential program.  We have residence halls of all sizes and types, including those with only first year students, only upperclass students or a mixture of all class years. The result is an interesting blend of experience within each residence hall.

We offer housing in many configurations to meet the developing needs of our students. We provide apartment and suite style options, in addition to traditional singles, doubles and triples. First-year students should anticipate living in a traditional space with one or two roommates. Returning Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors will select their room type in the annual Housing Lottery.

Each residence hall is unique in design and character. Each hall features a formal living room and other common space with a piano and a grandfather clock. The halls also have handsomely furnished sitting rooms, breakfast area, computer room, and basement laundry facility.

Student rooms vary in size and shape varies across campus. Each room is furnished with standard twin size bed (36"x72"), bookcase, desk and desk chairs, mirror, and dresser. Each room has a telephone and computer jacks; most rooms have one computer jack for each student and there is wireless coverage in all rooms.

Each residence hall has basement laundry facilities with washers and dryers. The washers and dryers are on the One Card system. In order to use the washers and dryers you will need to open an MHC Xpress account with Auxiliary Services located at Central Services, 413-538-3111.
