A fully residential college, Kenyon offers students a variety of on-campus housing options, ranging from traditional residence halls to College-owned apartments and houses. 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.

Housing Options

First-year rooms are usually doubles, with a few singles and triples in the mix. All Kenyon residences are smoke-free. After your first year, options include traditional residence halls, modern apartments and houses based on shared interests and themes. Kenyon also offers gender inclusive and substance-free housing.

Housing Selection Process

In a typical academic year, returning students make their housing selection via an online housing management system in spring. First-year students receive their housing and roommate assignments in mid-summer.

Information for New Students

The Office of Residential Life and the Orientation team are here to help you transition to life on campus.

A complete list of dates and deadlines for the academic year are included in the residential life calendar.
