First-year students are generally placed in Anderson or Columbia Halls and upperclassmen can choose a hall, one of the Cottages, a suite-style or even a single room. Wherever you stay, it will soon become your home on campus.

A variety of campus student housing options are available for upperclassmen at Elmira College.
It’s easier to adjust to college life when you have someone in your corner. That’s why Elmira makes sure that every residence hall is supervised by a professional staff member. The Community Coordinator (CC) lives in the building and is responsible for making sure the hall runs smoothly. Each floor has a specially trained student staff member called the Resident Assistant (RA). These are the people who you can go to for advice, for help with an issue, or just to have a talk.
Think of your residence hall as your home base while you’re here. First-year students are assigned to a hall with their classmates so they can build their Elmira community while encouraging and supporting each other. Upperclassmen use the Housing Selection process to select their residence hall.
