Davidson College promotes respect and responsibility among individuals in our residential community and encourages students to learn from one another to become model citizens.

With a four-year residency requirement, over 95 percent of students live on campus. The Residence Life Office is located next to Lula Bell’s between Commons, Belk and Cannon.

Housing for First-Year Students

Incoming first-year students are paired together and placed in a residence hall by Residence Life. All residence hall rooms assigned to first-year students are double-rooms, so every incoming student will have a roommate. At the beginning of spring semester, students will be able to choose their roommate and select housing through the lottery process for their sophomore year.
