Residence Life

Live, Learn and Grow on Campus 

As a campus resident, you’ll participate in a community of actively involved students who enjoy convenient access to classes, academic resources, personal support services, and interaction with campus leaders. We strive to provide a living environment where engaging conversations and communities lead to the development of life skills, leadership skills, and a holistic educational experience.

Campus Housing Requirement

College of Idaho students who are not yet 21, unmarried, and without dependent children live in campus housing for three years, or six semesters.

In campus housing, residents form strong community bonds and are supported by developmental programs.

Residence Halls

Our five residence halls offer a mix of single, double, triple and suite-style housing. Four of our dorms are traditional corridor-style housing with shared bathrooms and common areas. Finney Hall, our most recent renovation, is suite-style with three to four rooms sharing a common area and bathroom. Every residence hall has laundry areas, kitchens and lounge rooms. Freshmen are grouped together in a residence hall to best support their transition and development.

Apartment Buildings

The Village Apartments offer juniors and seniors the convenience of being on campus coupled with a more independent living environment. Each unit is two or four bedrooms, has a private bathroom, a full kitchen, a living room and in-unit laundry and heating/cooling. The Village is staffed by an apartment manager to provide minimal programming and address resident issues.
