The Housing and Residential Education program exists to develop and cultivate a community of students who may enhance the academic experience. The overarching goals are (a) to emphasize student responsibility, and (b) to develop student understanding of how individual actions may affect campus culture. The goal is to provide safe, secure, and engaging housing for on-campus students.
The Daniel Webster College residence hall community is another part of our communitry. The Student Development Office (SDO) attempts to promote an atmosphere of mutual respect and cooperation, which allows, among other things, student input into community decision making. Community standards and the code of student conduct support a safe and engaging campus community. Students are expected to know, understand, and comply with these standards and procedures in order to contribute to the maintenance of an environment conducive to academic excellence and personal growth.
The Student Development Office staff and a team of students known as Resident Assistants (RAs), are responsible for five residence halls and the students within the residential community. The staff members work toward the creation of an atmosphere conducive to an academic environment, mutual respect, understanding, and "home away from home" for resident students. Each student chosen to serve as a RA has undergone an interview process and appropriate training. Part of the role of an RA is to help students develop in personal and social areas. RAs assist students by providing social opportunities, serving as a resource to students, addressing concerns and issues, holding students accountable for their behavior, as well as developing a sense of community within the residence halls. Students are encouraged to get to know their RAs and to engage in the living-learning experience through active participation.
Daniel Webster College offers students a variety of living styles through its residence halls. In the three traditional halls, most of the rooms are double occupancy with a limited number of single and triple rooms available. Each room comes with cable TV access, a telephone outlet, and Internet access. Each hall has card-operated laundry facilities and most have lounges equipped with TV and community space for students to socialize and study. Some halls have common area kitchens.
There are two non-traditional living options available. The townhouses each house four upper-class students and provide a two-story living environment with two bedrooms, one and one-half baths, a living room and a kitchen. Fagan Hall,considered a non-traditional hall, provides students with a variety of living options, from traditional single, double, and triple rooms to upper-class suites that house between four to seven students. Each suite provides residents with a living room, dining area, and bathroom. Fagan Hall has a lounge on each floor, a kitchen, study rooms, bike storage rooms and a laundry room.
The placement of students living in the residence halls strives to provide a balance between the benefit of the whole community and the particular wants and needs of the individuals. New students fill out a roommate matching form describing their living habits and interests, which helps the Housing and Residential Education Life staff to match roommates and generate room assignments. Upper-class students participate in a housing selection in the spring semester. For this process, each student receives a housing priority number based on his/her cumulative grade point average and credits earned.
First-year students typically live in Gates or Fremont Halls. The first floor of Gates Hall is designated for the Living Learning Community and generally all-female on the second floor. Fremont Hall is the only single sex residence hall on campus and houses first-year male students. Upper-class students reside in Tamposi Hall, Fagan Hall, or the townhouses, but participate in a housing selection in the spring to select their rooms. Students desiring to live in the townhouses must have the credits to be a junior or senior.
Daniel Webster College has a two-year residency requirement. This means any first or second year students whose permanent address is more than 30 miles from Daniel Webster College must live on campus.
Residence hall accommodations are offered to students when the college is in regular session. Students are expected to adhere to published opening and closing dates. At the end of each semester, each student agrees to vacate the hall within 24 hours of his/her last exam (and no later than the published closing date and time) with the exception of graduating students at the conclusion of the spring semester. Students are not permitted to reside on campus during the Thanksgiving break, between the end of the fall semester and when residence halls open for the spring semester, during spring break, and during the summer months. However, Daniel Webster College recognizes the need of some students for on campus housing during semester, spring, and summer breaks. To meet this need, limited accommodations are available at a charge of $125 per week. Students must work with the Student Development Office to receive approval.
