Residency Requirement – Springfield College is a residential college that is committed to the belief that there are numerous benefits to living in a college community. The College believes in the education of the whole person and regards the residential experience as an integral part of that education. For this reason, the College requires all full-time undergraduate students to live on campus for a minimum of three years. Students can petition to be released from the residency requirement based on the following conditions:
- Is 23 years of age or older
- Is married
- Has dependent child
- Has been a veteran of at least two years on active military duty
- Is planning to live at home with a parent(s) or legal guardian and that home is within a 60 drive to the College campus
- Has lived on campus for three years at Springfield College or another college.
*Students who meet one of the above criteria are required to petition the Office of Residence Life by submitting a commuter status application. Approved students will have their status recorded by the College.
In most of the halls, students live in double rooms. In coed halls, students of the same sex occupy an entire floor or wing. Each residence hall has at least one common kitchen where students may cook or reheat food and several lounges for studying and relaxing.
- Shades or blinds (except for Gulick Hall)
- Rooms are supplied with an extra-long (80”) twin-sized bed with a height of at least six to eight inches above the floor, a dresser, a desk, a desk chair, and closet space for each student
- Cable television hook ups, computer network access, and telephone/voicemail service **Telephone service and individual voicemail are available in each room at no cost to students; however, students must provide their own touch-tone telephones. Students may want to check with their roommate before buying a phone to avoid duplication of phones in one room. Long-distance service is not provided by the College. Students may want to look into purchasing a phone card to make long-distance calls.
- Please be aware that halogen lamps are not allowed in student rooms as they pose a serious fire hazard.
- Microwaves are also not allowed in student rooms due to fire and safety regulations; however, all of our traditional halls and apartments have kitchens that are equipped with a microwave for students' use.
