Housing Options and Rates
Davidson offers new and current students a variety of living styles that includes 12 traditional residence halls, seven on-campus apartment buildings and a co-op style sustainability-themed house.
The college typically houses first-year and upper-class students separately to ease new student transition and best respond to the needs of first-year students.
First-year students are assigned housing with an option to change their living arrangements after fall semester. Returning students select housing through a lottery process that occurs at the beginning of spring semester.
