Residence life

Approximately 60 percent of Mount Ida College students choose to live on campus. Living on campus at Mount Ida connects you to a vibrant and dynamic residential community. As a residential student, you will live in an environment that supports academic excellence and personal exploration. Our residence halls are respectful, comfortable and supportive places where students can learn, develop and grow.


The Office of Residence Life is here to assist you in a variety of ways. Staffed with full-time professional staff members, graduate students and resident assistants, the Office of Residence Life offers residence hall programs and events, maintains community standards, and works to create close-knit residential communities. We look forward to helping you make Mount Ida your home away from home.

Residence Life has two main offices on campus, Malloy Hall and Holbrook Hall: Malloy is open from 8:30 a.m. to midnight on weekdays and from 10:00 a.m. to midnight on weekends and holidays; Holbrook is open Mondays through Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For questions related to Residence Life, please call 617-928-4612 or email us at
