Prospective Students

Welcome to the Office of Residential Life (ResLife) website!  The Residential Life office plays an integral role in any Bowdoin student's experience.  Much more than just a housing department, ResLife is a central hub of campus life that fosters individual student growth, community engagement, and leadership development. 

Your Bowdoin experience begins with ResLife, as your proctor, RA, and members of your affiliated College House greet you at your building, help carry your boxes, and guide you through Orientation.  This is only the first of many ways ResLife will aid you as a Bowdoin student. We hope that you will peruse our website to get a better sense of what else our office has to offer. 

Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.
