General Information

Studies have shown that not only do students who spend at least their first couple of years living on campus receive better grades than those who commute, they also tend to persist (and finish their degrees) in higher numbers than those living off campus. That's why we think it's important for students to take advantage of campus housing. It's not just about having a place to sleep; living on campus is about community, friends, and learning about one another.   

To assist in living away from home and to enhance academic success, all new students who are under the age of 21 and have not reached senior status, are not married, or are not veterans are required to live on campus unless they live with parents or legal guardians. Most upper-class students choose to remain on campus. 

First year students live in single gender halls. Women live in the Cole Hall and men live in Wallingford. Cole Hall is an all-freshmen and transfer hall. Upperclassmen have the choice of living in Broadhurst, Wallingford, or Sutton residence halls, or in one of the four on-campus apartments, depending on qualifying factors.

All students living in residence halls must purchase a meal plan through College Services with the exception of those who are student teaching. 

Laundry facilities are also available for student use in each dorm (The machines do not require quarters; laundry costs are covered with a laundry fee). Cole Hall, Reid, Sutton, Broadhurst, and Wallingford each have lobbies with couches and televisions for student use. Internet access is provided as a service to SC students and connections are available in each room. Television cable and telephone hook-ups are standard in each room.  There is also wireless internet in all public areas.
