Residence Life at Reed

Division of Student Life

The Office of Residence Life fosters a residential experience aimed at supporting students in their academic pursuits, personal growth, and participation in an interdependent community.

Residence life oversees the experience of living on campus at Reed. Our team includes both professional staff members, who hold positions as administrative staff and area coordinators, and students, who fill the role of house advisers.

Residence life coordinates placement in on-campus housing, facilitates community-focused programming, and ensures a safe and welcoming environment in the residence halls and other college housing options for students.

Residence Life Changes

Starting with the 2019-20 academic year, residence halls will be grouped into neighborhood configurations on campus. First-year students will be concentrated in first-year neighborhoods, while juniors and seniors will be able to select rooms in upper-division neighborhoods. Sophomores will be able to choose their neighborhood based on their interests. Please see our housing updates page for additional information.
