Residence life

Approximately 60 percent of Mount Ida College students choose to live on campus. If you are interested in the opportunity to gain independence in a supportive and manageable way, you may want to consider becoming a resident student. You can live with and learn from your classmates as you take these first important steps into adulthood – managing your college responsibilities, time and budget.


Our residence life staff is here to assist our residential students in a variety of ways, including, residence hall programming, enforcing college policies and acting as a liaison with our facilities team. The team is comprised of an assistant dean, two assistant directors, two resident directors, a graduate resident director, and a graduate assistant. The resident assistant staff includes 25 Mount Ida College upperclassmen and graduate students. Together, in cooperation with our residential student community, we create a supportive living and learning environment.

Residence Life has two main offices on campus, Malloy Hall and Holbrook Hall: Malloy is open from 8:30 a.m. – midnight on weekdays and from 10:00 a.m. – midnight on weekends and holidays; Holbrook is open Mondays – Fridays from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
