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.
