Colgate’s Residential Life offers students a four-year residential experience designed to guide their personal and academic growth. Ninety percent of students live on campus in a variety of housing options
from traditional residence halls to townhouses, allowing them to move “down the hill” into more independent housing as they grow through their years at Colgate. All students are enrolled in one of four residential commons
, immersive living and learning communities where they make connections that last long after they leave the university.
