Campus Living & Residence life

Residence  Life is housed within the Office of Campus Living, along with Community Standards. Approximately 60 percent of Mount Ida College students choose to live on campus. Living in a residence hall at Mount Ida connects you to a vibrant and dynamic residential community, providing meaningful opportunities for you to engage with one another, explore new experiences and to develop outside of the classroom.


We are here from the day you move in to help you adjust to your new life on campus and to help you throughout your stay in our on-campus community. Our Resident Directors (RDs) and Resident Assistants (RAs) offer a variety of programs each month to keep you involved, make the most of your Mount Ida experience and to enjoy your new home.

Last year alone we offered upwards of 90 programs. Amenities in the residence halls include cable, internet/wifi, laundry and a website that lets you know when your laundry is done. Our signature programs include: Breast Cancer Awareness Tie-Dye and an End of Year Donation Drive in collaboration with the Center for Leadership and Civic Engagement.

Don’t hesitate to call on any member of the Office of Campus Life.  We recommend that you get to know your Resident Director and other members of our staff.  Introduce yourself, get involved, meet new people and ask questions!  We are here to help you find the answers.
