Freshman Village

The Reuben Philips Residence College (MRC)

The Rebecca Bates Philips Residence College (WRC)

Mest Wing


The Men's (MRC) and Women's (WRC) Residence Colleges along with the Mest wing for women make up Freshman Village.  Freshman Village provides a great opportunity to get to know your fellow classmates and it is exclusively for freshmen students.  This arrangement allows Residence Life to provide the support and services needed to help freshman succeed as they transition to college.

The residence colleges have suite-style furnished rooms with air conditioning, cable TV, and wireless internet.  Each suite accommodates up to eight residents and includes four bedrooms, two baths, and a living room area.  Each residence college features a common lounge area, study space, a theater room, and a community kitchen.  There is also a weekly cleaning service for the bathrooms. 

The Mest wing of the WRC offers a more traditional housing layout.  Rooms are joined by long hallways.  In the Mest two bedrooms share a common bathroom and each suite accommodates up to four residents.  All the other common areas and WRC amenities are available to Mest residents as well.
