On-Campus Housing

Most Colgate students reside in on-campus residential facilities. The on-campus housing process covers students who will reside in traditional residence halls and the Residential Commons, campus townhouses, campus apartments, and in the Broad Street Community.

Fraternities and Sororities

Rising juniors and seniors interested in residing in their fraternity or sorority chapter house should contact the chapter president or house manager. Each fraternity and sorority coordinates its own housing process with support and advisement from the Office of Residential Life and the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Advising.

Off-Campus Housing
