Living on Campus

Residential Life offers students small residential communities where you'll feel comfortable and connected.

Whether you live in one of our traditional residence halls, contemporary residence halls, suite-style halls, or Victorian houses, you'll be part of a living environment that fosters both academic success and personal development.

Traditional Residence Halls 

Traditional Residence Halls house the majority of first-year students and offer the best environment for them to learn about campus, get to know each other, and live the traditional residence experience with their fellow classmates. Traditional halls consists of doubles, triples, and in a few cases quads. 

Arnow Hall exterior

Contemporary Residence Halls 

Contemporary style residence halls consist of quads (adjoining double rooms connected by a private bathroom). The halls are co-educational, but a single-sex environment is maintained in each quad room.

Butterworth Hall exterior

Suite-Style Residence Halls

Suite-Style residence halls offer a spacious living environment with the added convenience of a common area, small kitchenette, and bathroom(s) to share with your roommates. Suite-style housing is typically reserved for upper-class students. 

Hoag House exterior

Victorian Houses 

Resident houses offer a unique on-campus living experience. Each house is individual in style and brings forth a sense of history and community. 

Break Housing

Break housing provides students the opportunity to stay on campus between semesters. If you are required to work an internship nearby, have an on-campus job, or are taking classes towards your degree during the winter or summer breaks, safe and secure campus housing is available. 

New Student Housing

Lasell does not have designated housing for first-year students; however most new students will be residing in our traditional-style residences which include Woodland, McClelland and Van Winkle Halls. New students are primarily assigned to doubles, triples, and in a few cases, quads.

Themed Housing

Lasell is a Gender Inclusive Housing community. Students may request to live in one of our themed-housing communities: Quiet Study house, Wellness house, Environmental Justice house, Honors housing, Equity and Intersectionality house, or in our All-Women Housing. 

Please note: Some female students will be assigned to an all-female identifying community, regardless of their indicated preference. Most new students will be assigned to residential communities which are designated as "dry," meaning alcohol is not permitted in the building regardless of the residents ages.

Resident Assistants

Our Resident Assistants are part of a team of dedicated students and professionals who promote a safe and healthy living environment that supports students' personal and academic growth. Each year, the Department of Residential Life hires 50 students who live in the residence halls to act as community developers, supporters of the academic and departmental mission statement, community standards educators, peer advisors, role models, and housing and facilities liaisons.
