As a four-year residential liberal arts institution, Colgate houses the vast majority of students close to its academic core. We are not able to house all students in our residential facilities, however, so we release a small fraction of our overall student population during their senior year to live in privately-owned off-campus housing in the Village of Hamilton. Below, you will find a series of frequently asked questions about the private off-campus housing process. If you have additional questions, feel free to reach out to us by email
or at (315) 228-7367.
