Housing and Residence Life

Massachusetts College of Art and Design is committed to the principle that learning at college occurs both in and out of the classroom. On the basis of this living and learning philosophy, the residence halls are a vital part of the collegiate experience and are at the center of day to day life for students.

The Office of Housing and Residence Life staff strives to create a sense of community defined by cooperation, commitment to the welfare of the group, and a sense of responsibility to self and others.

The programs and activities in the halls are designed to promote interaction among residents, assist new students in meeting each other, and offer students an opportunity to learn about themselves and each other.

Finally, the residence halls provide an opportunity for exchanging divergent views and beliefs and sharing in the diversity of our campus community.

The key element to a successful residential experience is the willingness to get involved. You can have an impact on the direction of your hall and MassArt through your participation in activities. We hope that you make the most of this opportunity by accepting the challenge and responsibility of being an active and concerned resident.
