Residential Learning Experiences Residential Commons
In the fall of 2015, Colgate launched the first of four residential commons. Located in Curtis and Drake halls and co-led by Rebecca Shiner, associate professor of psychology, and Mark Shiner, university chaplain, this community is home to about 200 first-year students and 200 second-year students. The community is aligned with a designated annex — at 100 Broad Street — where junior and senior members live. READ MORE Mellon Sophomore Residential Seminars
Since 2013, Colgate has offered three or four seminar opportunities for sophomore students in the fall semester. Each seminar allows 16-18 students to live and study together, meet regularly in their residence hall with the seminar professors and guest speakers, and travel together to a related destination at no extra charge.

Gender Inclusive Housing Statement
We are committed to providing a living environment that is welcoming to all gender identities. Students have the option to live on campus with whomever they choose, regardless of biological sex, gender, or gender identity.
Effective in the 2013-2014 academic year, upper-level students, regardless of their sex or gender, may request a gender-inclusive bedroom, suite, apartment, townhouse, or college house as part of the housing lottery process. First-year students may also request to live in gender inclusive housing, but must do so by way of a special request made to the Office of Residential Life, prior to the room preference deadline.
