Dartmouth houses more than 3,000 students in its residential communities; nearly 90 percent of undergraduates live in Dartmouth housing, whether it’s a residence hall, an approved co-ed, fraternity, or sorority house, or an undergraduate society. Sophomores, juniors, and seniors can apply to reside in affinity program learning-based communities that can be housed in a section of a traditional residence hall or in a free-standing house.
The Undergraduate Housing Office offers on-campus housing within communities that are designed to enhance students' opportunities to learn from each other while also supporting the goals they have established for their academic careers at Dartmouth.
On-campus undergraduate residence halls are grouped into “clusters,” each supervised by a full-time, live-in Community Director. All first-year students participate in Dartmouth's First-Year Residential Housing Program. Approximately one-third of the first-year class lives in all-first-year clusters, the River and the Choates, while the rest of the class lives on first-year floors in mixed-class housing in Russell Sage, McLaughlin, and East Wheelock clusters. Dartmouth’s three additional clusters house only returning students.
Graduate housing is offered in the North Park Graduate Housing complex, at the Tuck School of Business, and at Sachem Village in nearby West Lebanon, N.H., for graduate students with families.
