Living on Campus
In order to ease your transition to college - and increase your chances for success - Keene State College requires all first and sophomore year students(59 credits or less) to live on campus. This approach supports significant research indicating that first-year and sophomore students who live on campus are more likely to be successful academically, socially and developmentally.
Living/Learning Communities help create a more seamless transition to college life by providing an environment where faculty and residential staff work collaboratively to nurture communities where students can develop friendships and succeed academically.
