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.

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