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 and two resident directors. The resident assistant staff includes 26 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.
