Clare Hall students having fun in the common area

Campus Life

Living on campus puts you in the center of the action — plus, you’ll be only minutes away from everything you need: class, dining, the library, athletic facilities, etc. The deepest benefit, though, comes from the close relationships you’ll form: lifelong friendships!

Some of my favorite times in the res halls were when we kept our doors open and went in and out of each other’s rooms to hang out and listen to music. There was such a strong feeling of closeness from living together.
