Southern Vermont College's Residence Life program encourages all students to develop independence, responsibility, accountability, and leadership experiences in conjunction with their classroom experiences. Each residence hall has Community Advisors (CAs) to help residents. CAs are valuable resources for all students on campus. Their main responsibilities are the safety, security, and well-being of the resident students. They offer educational and recreational programs that all students are encouraged to attend. The staff of CAs are supervised and trained by the Director of Residence Life.
We all need to work together to live in a healthy and safe community. All students and staff are encouraged to report any vandalism that they may witness to Security or to any member of the Residence Life staff. We also invite and encourage all members of our community to participate in our events and offer suggestions, ideas, and assistance. Southern Vermont College is a wonderful place to live, and we all must work together to keep it that way.
Residence Hall living can be a very important part of a student's educational experience. Many lifelong friendships have developed from college roommate relationships. Southern Vermont College encourages all full-time students to take advantage of the on-campus housing facilities.
All full-time students, primarily freshmen and sophomores, with fewer than four full-time semesters of college enrollment are required to reside in College housing, unless you live within 45 miles of the campus or are 21 years of age or older.
A new residence hall opened in January 2009. Click here to learn more about Hunter Hall.
Each current residence hall is made up of six suites. Each suite offers a living room, bathroom, and four double-occupancy bedrooms. In some suites, an additional single bedroom is also available. The Residence Complex also offers a laundry facility, cable television service, telephone service, in-room internet access, and a 24-hour computer lab.
The following information relates to all aspects of residential living. Questions should be directed to the Director of Residence Life, whose office is located on the first floor of Aldis Hall.
