Residence Hall

Housing

Living on campus in the Residence Hall offers students the chance to live on campus within a community of artists and designers. Students also have the convenience of being located right above the library and in the same building as Elaine’s Dining Commons and the Otis College Café.

The Building

The Residence Hall has FREE laundry available on every floor. Throughout the building there are unique lounges, such as a kitchen, study lounge, and studio space, all containing cable TV.  The building is equipped with wireless internet that is only accessible to residents.  All Residents also can sign up for HBOGo accounts.

There are Resident Assistants (RA) living on each floor to help build community amongst the students. The RAs serve as a resource for the residents, assist with any problems, and provide programs on nights and weekends. 

The Rooms

The majority of rooms are shared Quad layouts (shown below), housing four students per unit, two students in each bedroom. There are also a handful of double rooms that are assigned at random. Occassionally double rooms may be bought as a private space. This would mean there would be one student in the Double layout (shown below). There is limited availability for a private space, and are granted on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are requesting a private space as a medical accommodation, please reach out to Student Disability Services by emailing cbranch@otis.edu to learn what documentation is needed.
