Residence Life

Housing is provided for undergraduate students in the School of Arts & Sciences and the School of Nursing & Healthcare Professions for the academic year. As a CNR resident student, you will be a member of a community of people — students, faculty, and staff — learning and growing together

The Residence Life staff aims to promote a lively and engaging campus community. We believe housing means more than having a roof over your head. Residence life has a concrete educational value. Our staff will expose you to a variety of educational, cultural and personal growth experiences that will accomplish the following goals:

  • Expose you to new ideas, values, and cultures,
  • Help connect your in and out-of-class experiences,
  • Help you understand, accept and function with interpersonal and cultural differences,
  • Encourage the development of leadership, management, and interpersonal skills,
  • Help you take advantage of the educational resources at CNR and in the surrounding community,
  • Encourage your personal growth and awareness, and to support the development of a sense of community in the residence halls.

Residence Halls

The College of New Rochelle's residence halls offer non-smoking, comfortable spaces that provide a vibrant and engaging environment for students to live and learn.

Our residence halls are Angela Hall, Brescia Hall, and Ursula Hall. Each residence hall houses an average of 120 students. Most rooms at CNR are doubles, but there are some singles available. The rooms come equipped with a desk, chair, dresser, bed, and closet for each student.

We recognize that students bring their own sense of style. You are encouraged to decorate and personalize your rooms along with your roommate. Check out DECORATING 101 »

Community living is an important aspect of residence life at the College. Each residence hall has common area lounges, kitchens and other spaces that foster group study, social exchange, and programming.

The College also offers Living Learning Communities, which bring together students with similar needs and interests, integrates academics with outside-the-classroom experiences, and builds meaningful relationships.

Housing Selection

As a resident student at The College of New Rochelle, housing selection is an important decision. The Student Development staff is dedicated to ensuring a positive quality of life in the residence halls which begins with the process of selecting a room for the next academic year.

Resident students can choose the Traditional Housing Program, which provides community-style living for returning students in both doubles and singles, or our living-learning communities, which offer areas for freshman students, nursing students, Honors students, and students majoring in math or science. . Students may also apply for medical housing with the Office of Resources, Equity, Accessibility & Learning, if they require specific housing accommodations.

All information pertaining to housing will be located in your welcome packet from admissions.
