The Office of Residential Life is here to help you transition to campus living. Learn more about our first-year housing options; once you know your housing assignment, you'll be able to find your room dimensions, view photos of typical rooms and more.

Submit Your Housing Preferences

Once your housing deposit has been received, you'll be able to access the housing preference form when you log into your student portal. The form is due June 1, and housing assignments are released in mid-July.

Roommate Information 

During Orientation, first-year students with roommates are given a roommate living agreement to help them get to know each other and discuss topics that are important for successful roommate relationships, from sleep and cleaning habits to shared belongings and visitor preferences.

First-Year Residence Halls

Most first-year students live in five residence halls — Gund, Lewis, Mather, McBride and Norton — grouped together at the northern end of campus.

New Student Orientation

Orientation is your opportunity to connect with faculty members, learn about Kenyon roles and traditions, establish relationships with your peers and settle in to life on campus.

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