A fully residential college, Kenyon houses all students on campus in a variety of housing ranging from traditional residence halls to College-owned apartments and houses. Most first-year students live in residence halls grouped together at the northern end of campus, making it easy to get to know the members of your class and form friendships.
The typical first-year room is a double, with a few singles and triples forming part of the mix. All Kenyon residences are smoke-free environments.
After the first year, a greater variety of housing options becomes available. You can live in one of the historic stone residence halls or in a modern apartment with its own kitchen. You can choose a coed or a single-sex floor. You can live in a "program house" (like the environmental center) or get a group together for "theme housing."
