Looking to subsidize your housing and meal plans next year? Residential Assistants (RA’s) receive full room and board. As we move forward into the semester, if you are interested in learning about becoming an RA for the 2018/2019 academic year, to pay attention to emails, posters and announcements within their Residence Halls for more information.

Here are the Application form & Recommendation form for RA Selection:

Upperclassmen Housing Takes place in November! Have you seen information regarding Phronesis House yet? If you’re not sure what that is, please check your emails, or contact the office and we will be happy to explain it to you. Before selecting housing, please remember that you are entering into a housing contract for one year and, like a lease, it can not be broken.

Don’t forget that Residence Halls close at 10am on November 22, 2017 for the Thanksgiving break. All students are expected to be out of the halls by tat time, unless they live in an apartment.

Living On Campus

In order to ease your transition to college - and increase your chances for success - Keene State College requires all first and second year students 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.

The same research indicates that after the second year, the positive influence of life on campus has left its mark, and most students choose to live off-campus for their junior and senior years, though some do live in our limited number of on-campus apartments. More about Living On Campus
