Residence Life

Bryant has 17 progressive residence halls, from traditional first-year housing, to suites, to more than 100 townhouse-style apartments for upperclass students. Campus housing is available to students for all four years.

Welcome

Living in the residence halls is an important part of your college experience at Bryant. Not only are the halls a place to rest your head, they are the home of a thriving academic and social community.

To ease the transition to campus life, first-year students are placed together. The majority of first-year students live in traditional residence halls where two students share a double room. The proximity of rooms, interconnected corridors, and shared common and bathroom spaces maximize your opportunities to meet others and form friendships.

Having a roommate is also a rite of passage. It helps you develop communication skills, consideration for other members in our community, accountability for your actions, and appropriate ways to solve conflicts.

What's important to know?

  • Housing is available for all four years.
  • First-year students are not required to live on campus.
  • Are you a transfer student? You are eligible for on-campus housing on a space-available basis.
  • You receive housing and roommate-matching forms following payment of your Bryant acceptance deposit. No separate housing deposit is required.

The professional staff of the Office of Residence Life is committed to fostering an environment conducive to your intellectual, social and personal growth; providing programs that meet your cultural and recreational needs; supporting you with counseling and referral services; and promoting responsibility, accountability and leadership experiences.

Area/Resident Directors are full-time professionals who live on campus and are responsible for the daily operations in the residence halls. Each has a master's degree in higher education administration or counseling. They supervise the student Resident Assistant (RA) staff, adjudicate student discipline cases, provide mediation and support services, and oversee social and educational programs offered in the residence halls. They also serve as a University official in case of after-hours emergencies in the residential areas.

First-Year Housing

To ease the transition into college life, first-year students are placed together. This allows you to meet people with similar interests and form lasting friendships.

We offer several accommodation styles for first-year students:

  • Traditional double rooms - this is a shared bedroom with one other student.
  • Double rooms in a suite - this is a shared bedroom with one other student that opens into a suite.
  • Three person rooms - this is a shared bedroom with two other students. This is not a "triple" room, as it was designed to accommodate three students and is larger than a traditional double room.
  • Quad rooms - this is a shared bedroom with three other students; all students have ample space as this room is extremely large.

Regardless of room type, each first-year student receives the same amenities. You can expect to have:

  • 1 extra long twin bed
  • 1 desk
  • 1 desk chair
  • 1 bureau
  • Limited closet space to hang items
  • Wireless internet connection

Each first-year building has:

  • Card access building entrance
  • Laundry facility with ID card operated machines
  • Kitchen or kitchenette
  • Study and social lounge space
  • Community television
