Residence Life

Welcome to Residence Life!

Garrett College offers two distinctive styles of residential living: traditional dormitory housing and two-and four-bedroom apartment-style housing. Students have numerous opportunities to become involved in student life and activities, develop lifelong friendships, and make the most of their college experience. Both Garrett Hall and Laker Hall are just a short walk from the main campus and are conveniently located next to the Garrett College Community Aquatic & Recreation Complex (CARC), a state-of-the-art fitness facility. The CARC is home to all Laker Nation athletic games.

The Office of Residence Life strives to provide students with a safe and enjoyable living environment, conducive to academic success, community development and personal growth. We endeavor to develop a sense of community and citizenship among residents living in the halls as well as teach students about the rights and responsibilities of living in a community. All residential students must be in good academic standing in order to live in the residence halls.

Our Residence Life staff is ready to assist you with any questions or concerns you may have. Contact us at rezlife@garrettcollege.edu.
