Residential facilities range in style from traditional residence halls to townhouses, apartments, and affinity housing.

Dining

Colgate boasts a healthy and sustainability-conscious food program with multiple locations for gathering and dining on campus. 

First-year students begin with an unlimited meal plan. As students grow in independence throughout their four years, additional meal-plan variants are available to suit their lifestyle.
