How much does it cost to live in the residence halls?
The cost of living on campus varies from one residence hall to another. For the latest pricing information, click here.
How are roommates selected?Students are matched through information provided from the roommate selection survey sent to each individual prior to their arrival. Please supply as much information in the survey as possible. The housing staff then matches students who seem most compatible. Students should understand that not all requests may be granted. Current students will undergo a room draw process that occurs during the fall and spring semesters. Class year designations at the time of the beginning of the fall semester will determine when students will participate in room draw.
Can students request a specific person to be their roommate?Yes, only if both individuals are of the same sex, and they request each other on the roommate selection survey.
When will students receive their housing assignments?The housing office will send out two main mailings, one at the end of May and one at the end of July. Please note that submitting a survey early does not guarantee that a student will be notified in the first mailing. In order to ensure the best pairing, matches are not made in the order that the housing office receives the returned surveys. In the assignment letter students will receive their housing assignment and roommate information. The roommate information will allow students to contact their new roommate before they arrive on campus.
Is there a telephone in the rooms?
How do students receive mail on campus?Students may receive mail in their campus mailbox, which is located in the Richard B. Flynn Campus Union. Students will be given their mailbox code or key during New Student Orientation at the end of August.
How are residence halls staffed?Residence halls are staffed with graduate students who serve as resident directors and assistant resident directors. In addition, each residence hall has a complete staff of undergraduate resident assistants. All staff is supervised by the director of housing and residence life.
Can students have cars on campus?Only juniors, seniors, and graduate students may have cars on campus. First-years and sophomores may not have a car on campus without the approval of the Department of Public Safety.
Are there single rooms available?The philosophy at Springfield College is that living in a residence hall is part of the educational process and the Office of Residence Life tries to accommodate all requests. However, single rooms are limited, so most are reserved for upperclassmen and graduate students. Remaining singles are given out on a first-come, first-served basis.
Are the halls open during college breaks?There are designated residence halls open during breaks (with the exception of Thanksgiving break). Student ID cards are deactivated during breaks, so card access to the building will be given only to students who have turned in a break housing form to the Office of Housing & Residence Life by the deadline(s) listed on the form.
What happens if a student and their roommate don’t get along?Students are encouraged to work out difficulties as a part of the educational process. Students who are having a problem are encouraged to discuss the matter with the residence hall staff. If the problem is not resolved, they should make an appointment in the Office of Housing & Residence Life.
What should students do if their hall is too noisy for sleep or study?
The Office of Housing & Residence Life staff encourages all students to work out their differences. If that fails, you should consult a resident assistant or another member of the residence hall staff. The resident hall staff is trained to help students with a variety of situations that may arise within the halls.
