The residence life program at Livingston College strives to develop opportunities in the residence halls that encourage the personal growth of students. To this end, the residence life staff implements educational, social, and cultural programs designed to meet the needs of a diverse student body.
Livingston College offers its students several housing options. Students may choose to live in traditional residence halls that house first-year and upper-class students or in a special-interest house or floor that offers a living environment centered around a specific theme. Special-interest residence hall arrangements include first-year student houses and floors, a wellness floor, quiet study areas, and upper-class houses.
Full-time professional staff and trained graduate and undergraduate student staff live in the residence halls. With their help, students plan and implement a wide variety of activities throughout the year, including holiday parties, Broadway outings, ski trips, movies, and programs on health and nutrition.
The residence halls are equipped with furnished rooms that include microwave ovens, refrigerator units, common area lounges, and quiet study rooms. In addition, each area has a main lounge that provides a place for students to study, socialize, or participate in organized activities such as pool, ping-pong, foosball, or shuffleboard. Laundry rooms and vending machines also are available to all resident students.
