Live with a small group of students in one of four restored historic homes at the Waterfront, or join a larger group in one of Mitchell's three traditional residence halls or our new Mariner Hall suite on the Upper-Campus. Whichever you choose, you will find comfortable, well-appointed surroundings in a warm, close-knit community environment.
That's what makes Mitchell so appealing-a delightful mix of traditional New England styles with up-to-the-minute features that college students (and their parents!) will appreciate. Every residence hall room is set up with a T-1 computer connection (wired and wireless) and cable hook-up. Laundry facilities are located within each residence hall.
Each Residence Hall is managed by a team of Residence Life staff members who live and work within each residence hall. The Residence Hall Director is a live-in professional who along with a staff of four to six undergraduate Resident Assistants (RAs) ensure that the best living-learning environment. There are leadership opportunities for all residents within each residence hall. Hall Councils are student-elected hall governments that address residence concerns and sponsor programming within the hall. In addition, RAs perform monthly programs/events for their residents.
Mitchell is known for its sense of community. Here we combine tradition with ease, scenic beauty with what's happening, the chance to be your own person with the assurance that you will never be alone. At Mitchell, we believe that's the perfect fit.
Mitchell College believes in the importance of on-campus residential living as part of the college experience. As such, all full time Mitchell students must live in residence halls unless they live in a home year round with a parent, spouse or guardian. The college does consider petitions of older and upper class students to live independently in the local community.
