Residence Life at Reed

Division of Student Services

Reed’s residence halls offer a range of living options. Room types include singles, undivided doubles, divided doubles, and triples. Each building contains a kitchen and one or more common rooms.

Each hall has a member or members of residence life staff living on site. House advisers (HAs) are current students in a staff role who help build community, mediate conflicts, and assist students as they navigate campus resources. Resident directors (RDs) are professional staff members who manage the halls and supervise HAs; they may also live on site.

Students can also opt to live in a theme community—usually occupying a floor, wing, or house—organized around a particular interest. This is a great way to keep connected with your nonacademic passions or branch out to follow a new path.
