At Kenyon, all students live on campus for the duration of their studies, learning and living side-by-side in an immersive, collaborative environment. Whether it's in the Outdoors Club apartment or the substance-free residence hall, our plethora of housing options gives you the opportunity to define your collegiate living experience.

Where You'll Live

Most first-year students live in a double room along with a roommate, just down the hall from a peer Community Advisor. Sophomores, juniors and seniors live in traditional residence halls as well as on-campus apartments, with options for themed, program gender-inclusive and substance-free housing. Led by the Office of Residential Life, Kenyon’s residential experience fosters learning, promotes responsibility and advocacy and encourages inclusion.

When I received an email telling me I was being offered a double room in the Crozier Center for Women, I was ecstatic.


To Pack or Not to Pack

From winter coats to surge protectors to funny costumes, here’s a list of essential (and the not-so-essential) items to help you prepare for your first year at Kenyon.

Open Housing

We believe that students should be able to live with any student(s) regardless of gender identity. Kenyon is one of 265 institutions nationwide — and one of 15 schools in Ohio — that provides open housing options for students. We also offer gender-specific housing for students who prefer that option.
