NEC is a residential campus with a focus on community living and learning. In order to promote community and help students create their “home away from home,” NEC requires all students to live on campus for three years or 6 academic semesters. The goal of our residential life program is to provide a safe and nurturing environment that supports and enhances classroom learning through co-curricular programming, faculty involvement, leadership training, and academic support. We have two residence halls set aside for first-year students: Colby and West. These residence halls exclusively house our first-year students and offer students an opportunity to study together and build lifelong friendships. The residence halls are staffed with full time professional Area Coordinators, Graduate Hall Directors, and upper-class Resident Advisors. The Residential Life staff works to foster a sense of community in each residence hall and works to connect students with activities and events on campus. Residential Life staff assist all students to help make the transition from high school to college be as seamless as possible. Housing assignments and roommates will be made once you have submitted your housing contract. If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Residential Life and Housing at 603.428.2242 or email us at email@example.com.
