The residence life program at Beloit College supports students in their learning endeavors and provides a comfortable, clean, safe and educational living-learning environment. Each student’s unique talents, values, and interests are valued and welcome additions to the Beloit residence community. The Office of Residential Life is committed to promoting diversity and inclusion on campus, in accordance with Beloit College's aspiration to be an anti-racist institution.
Residence hall living provides opportunities to develop new friendships and skills, and to learn about new ideas, beliefs and cultures within a caring community atmosphere. Living on campus also provides unique opportunities for interpersonal learning and growth as students live, study and play with the rest of the campus community. The residential “living education” is a key part of the residential liberal arts education.
Beloit College recognizes the importance of the residential education. Therefore, the school mandates that students live on campus for six semesters of their Beloit College experience. (Note: Off-campus study semesters count towards the six semester requirement.) Most students choose to live on campus for all four years. The high percentage of students living on campus, combined with the fact that most of our students come from great distances, creates an active and dynamic community throughout the week and on the weekends.
