Residential life at St. Olaf College is a strong, defining feature of the student life experience. St. Olaf College has a four-year residency requirement, and during the four years students live on campus, they will live or socialize within most of St. Olaf’s eleven residence halls.
The majority of campus living is comprised of double rooms. There are exceptions to this–some residence halls also have triples; pods with rooms opening onto a common living are; townhome and apartment-style living; and a very small amount of single rooms. Generally, students should expect to be living with a roommate.
