The best collegiate experience is one where the curriculum and co-curriculum are seamlessly integrated. With this value in mind, full-time undergraduate students are required to live in the residence halls and be enrolled in a meal plan until they attain senior standing by earning 102 academic credits or more. Students who qualify for commuter status are exempt from living on campus if they so wish. Learn more about Carthage’s residency requirement.
Carthage’s residence halls offer an exciting environment for living and learning. Each of our large, traditional residence halls have first-year communities, a few Greek affiliated floors, and are overseen by a live-in professional staff member and team of student staff. Our halls provide easy access to educational programs, leadership opportunities, and a full calendar of social activities.
