Dorchester Hall is a four-story, coed, traditional style building that accommodates approximately 168 residents. All living quarters are comprised of singles, doubles, triples and quads. Most academic buildings and libraries are less than a 5-minute walk away.

Dorchester Hall is the home to the Global Communities Living-Learning program. Program offices and a program classroom are located on the ground floor of the building.

Dorchester Hall is a fully air conditioned facility where residents have access to a study lounge, large multi-purpose room, and a laundry facility conveniently located on the ground floor of the building. Each room is complete with data jacks for private telephone and computer use, and cable connections for each student. Some rooms are equipped and accessible for persons with disabilities.


Resident Life Staff

Resident Life staff are available to assist residents with a variety of needs. The Resident Life staff are responsible for managing the residence halls, as well as creating a social, cultural, and academic environment through various programs. Community Assistants and Resident Assistants serve as a main resource for the residents. Community Assistants operate the residential community’s 24-hour service desk. The service desk (located in Queen Anne’s Hall) is the central location for which students pick up mail, obtain extra keys, and make other customer service related requests. Three undergraduate Resident Assistants live in the building. One full time Resident Director, who lives in the building, oversees the Resident Assistant staff.
