Residential Life

Landmark College is a great place to call home.

Welcome to Residential Life at Landmark College—your home away from home. Campus living can be an exciting and life-altering experience. Here you will make new friends, share experiences, and create memories to last a lifetime.

Residential Life at Landmark College is committed to providing quality living options, programs, and services that support the academic mission of LC by promoting safety, encouraging student development, and fostering the understanding and appreciation of diversity within our community. In order to carry out this mission, we believe in the following principles:

  • Providing safe, secure, clean, and reasonably priced residential environments conducive to the academic and personal development of the student
  • Providing services, programs, and activities that encourage students to mature intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually so as to add value to their community and society at large
  • Providing residential environments that honor human diversity and embrace students as individuals — each with rights and responsibilities, each with unique goals and needs

Each residential hall/area is staffed by a professional staff made up of a Resident Dean and Resident Assistants who live in the hall with you. Staff are available right in your hall for support, emergency assistance, and to help create a positive and supportive community for everyone.

Residential Life values the multitude of different voices, opinions, experiences, and identities of the Landmark community. In the interest of creating inclusive communities and in an attempt to engage every student, Residential Life is committed to housing students regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, age, disability, religion or faith system, veteran status or gender identity. We treat each individual as unique and respect their membership in the Landmark community. Residential Life seeks to place all students in the room, suite, or apartment option that best suits their developmental process. 

Living on campus provides numerous benefits, including:

  • Being only steps away from the dining hall, classes, faculty offices, programs, events, Student Center, and athletic center
  • High-speed wired and wireless (Wi-Fi) internet
  • Cable TV
  • Phone
  • Kitchenettes and common rooms in some suites
  • Common Lounge with large-screen TV for social gatherings
  • Laundry facilities in campus residence halls available to all students
  • Supportive staff (Resident Deans, student Resident Assistants, and Safety & Security)
  • Surrounding communities that offer more than meets the eye (Shuttle Services can take you there.)

Most first-year students will begin their residential life at Landmark College in a double-occupancy bedroom in one of our main residence halls (Robert Frost Hall, Alumni Hall, Edward Durell Stone Hall, or Stanton Davis Hall).

In these residence halls, 55-75 students live on two floors, and each floor is separated into two wings. These halls are co-ed by wing. Each residence hall has a central common room where students can go to study, relax with their friends, watch television or attend one of the many programs sponsored by the Residential Life staff.

After their first year, students will have the opportunity to live in the suite-style residences of George D. Aiken Hall, Chumley Hall, or The Bridges. These halls offer students a more independent living and learning environment, while still allowing connection and engagement with their community.

Aiken Hall, fully renovated in 2009, offers double and single room suites for two and four students. Single suites consist of two single rooms connected by a shared bathroom. Double suites consist of two double rooms connected by a common room and bathroom. Aiken Hall also offers a laundry room, lounge, fitness center, study room, and vending room.

The Bridges are made up of five separate buildings containing four suites each. Each suite houses four students, either in four single rooms or two singles and a double. In addition to the bedrooms, each suite has a common room, kitchenette, bathroom, shower, and laundry machines.

Chumley Halls are comprised of three-room suites (two single rooms and a double room) that share a bathroom. The suites are off of common areas that include lounge space and kitchen facilities. There are six to eight suites in each of the two Chumley buildings.

All residence halls (as well as all campus buildings) are non-smoking environments. Smoking is allowed in designated smoking areas only.

Frequently Asked Questions About Residence Halls

  • Single rooms are assigned on the basis of seniority, and there is a very limited number of single rooms available.

    • If you are a new student, it is unlikely that you will be able to get a single room.
    • If you are a returning student and you would like to request a single, it is very important that you make this request on the Online Housing Application and that you submit your application before the deadline. While we'll do our best to honor all requests, we can't guarantee that you will get a single room.
  • Yes, the transition from one semester to the next is a great time to request a change. It is very important to put your request on the Online Housing Application and submit your application on time. We will do our best to honor all requests.

  • Yes, please see Residence Hall Rates.

  • There are laundry rooms in Aiken, Frost, Davis, and Chumley A. Bridges apartments have their own laundry machines. Students may also subscribe to weekly laundry delivery service provided by E&R Laundry Services.

  • Although there is a strongly enforced expectation that students will not use alcohol or illicit drugs on campus, students who choose Wellness Housing (Chumley and Davis) agree to make an additional commitment to remaining substance-free. Substances are defined to include alcohol, cigarettes, and other smoking materials, as well as all illicit drugs. Students in Wellness Housing sign an agreement to keep their room free from substances at all times. Davis also has extended quiet hours, from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m.

  • These residence halls offer a similar living experience with some slight differences in features:

    • Davis Hall houses a designated “Wellness Hall”, a laundry room, and the Campus Security office on the basement floor.
    • The first floor of Alumni Hall houses the Dining Hall.
    • Stone Hall houses Coaching Services as well as some classrooms and faculty offices.
    • Frost Hall has a small workout room (accessible by all students) and laundry room
  • The Bridges are apartment-style living with two to four rooms per apartment (four singles, or two doubles), a kitchen/common area, a laundry room, and a split bathroom (one room with a shower, one room with a toilet and sink). There are four Bridges apartments per building, two on the top floor and two on the bottom.

    • Residents in the Bridges are responsible for cleaning their own apartment common areas and bathrooms.
    • College housekeeping services cleans common areas belonging to the building as a whole.

    Chumley Complex offers suite-style living with a bathroom for each suite of two to four students. There is a large shared kitchen on the top floor for use by the Chumley community, and there is a downstairs lounge area with TV and couches. Chumley B houses a laundry room.

    • Chumley residents are responsible for maintaining cleanliness of the shared kitchen.
    • Residents receive College housekeeping support for maintaining cleanliness of bathrooms and common lounge.

    Aiken Hall is semi-suite-style living with a bathroom or common area shared between two student rooms. Room combinations are usually a double with a double, or a double with a single room (three to four students). The Aiken building has a common lounge, a laundry room, a medium-size workout room, and vending machines; these features are accessible by all students.

    • Aiken residents are  responsible for cleaning their own common areas and bathrooms.
  • Bridges kitchens and the shared Chumley kitchen contain a microwave, stove, refrigerator and sink. Bridges kitchens are "mini-kitchen" areas and have a couple of cabinets, shelving, and a small countertop. The shared Chumley kitchen is a large kitchen with full-size countertops as well as cabinetry.

    Kitchens are not supplied with kitchen utensils or dinnerware; however, if these items are left by other students at the end of the semester, we will leave them there if they're in usable condition. You may want to hold off on shopping for your kitchen until you arrive on campus, so you can see how much space there is and what utensils may already be there.

  • Residential Life has a Roommate Mediation Process to help support the students involved to reach a resolution. The basic steps are outlined below:

    • Step One: Roommates discuss the issue(s) to see if they can resolve it on their own.
    • Step Two: If the roommates cannot reach an agreement on their own, roommates can speak with residential life staff (either a Resident Assistant or Resident Dean) to schedule a roommate mediation to work on resolving the issues and establish a Roommate Agreement. Residential Life staff will check in soon after the mediation to see how the roommates are doing on their concerns and the agreement.
    • Step Three: If above steps have taken place and there are still irreconcilable issues, the next steps may be a) student with concerns moves; b) student not following agreement moves, or c) both students move. All room changes during the semester are solely at the discretion of the Director of Residential Life.
