Our residence halls aren't just places to sleep and study. Clarkson's campus housing brings students together with community-building programs and provides well-equipped facilities that quickly become home.
Throughout your time at Clarkson, select from cohort-appropriate housing options through the annual Housing Lottery system. First-year and sophomore students, while they are separated generally, reside in traditional-style housing. Juniors are more likely to live in suite-style housing. Seniors are mainly spread out within apartment-style communities. Select options are additionally available to graduate students.
A big part of college is finding your people. In Living-Learning Communities, first-year students build connections with others who have similar interests. Find theme floors dedicated to gamers, makers, movie lovers and more careers and passions.
Dining and Catering
Satisfy your taste buds with a wide array of choices, from sit-down meals to grab-and-go options, in locations across campus. Flexible meal plans mean you pay for what you need. Students who do not reside in apartment-style housing get assigned full dining plans. And, our staff is ready to help students with particular dietary needs, including food allergies and other restrictions.
