Specialty Housing



Alternative Specialty Housing

Alternative specialty housing is a dedicated and valued part of the Connecticut College residential experience. With this in mind, we have created a process that takes into account the shared governance experience of our community, but also provides opportunities for groups to thrive around a common cause. 

Common Interest Housing

Common interest communities (formally thematic housing) will become a dedicated and valued part of the Connecticut College residential experience. With this in mind, we have created a process that takes into account the shared governance experience of our community, but also provides opportunities for groups to thrive around a common cause. 

Gender Inclusive Housing

Gender inclusive housing allows students to self-select roommates of a different gender or biological sex. This option will be available to rising sophomores, juniors and seniors. This option acknowledges the extraordinary diversity of the student population at Connecticut College, including gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning students, and ensures the College provides fair and inclusive housing options for all students. This option is not limited to any particular residence house.

Independent Living Options

Recognizing that not all students will want to live together under a common interest, any remaining apartments and independent living spaces from the Common Interest application will be available to students based on their combined lottery numbers and application.
