Housing & Dining

At New England College, we work hard to help you create a “home away from home.”  As a small residential community, our primary focus is to provide a living and learning environment that directly supports each student’s educational, social, and personal development.

Residential Life

Our Residential Life and Housing staff is committed to making your out-of-classroom experience be the best it can be, and  strives to serve our diverse community by maintaining a healthy and safe learning environment that promotes intellectual curiosity, personal accountability, civility, and social development for all students.

Each of our eight residence halls are staffed by live-in professional Area Coordinators, Graduate Hall Directors, and highly trained upperclass students who serve as Resident Advisors.  The in-hall staff assist all students with day-to-day needs.  Students are encouraged to contact one of them should they need assistance, advice, or just someone to talk to.  In addition, Resident Advisors plan social and educational programs for all residents.

There are numerous opportunities to become engaged in over 50 student clubs and organizations.  There are many lectures, athletic events, theatre performances, art exhibits, and community service opportunities on campus each year.  All NEC students are encouraged to be actively engaged in their campus community.

New England College is the perfect place for students to experience all that college life has to offer.


Academic growth and personal transformation require a healthy diet. Whether it’s at Gilmore Dining Hall, Simon Café, Tortington Arms Pub, or at one of our many catering events we serve on campus, we aim to please!

Our goal is to create and offer services that contribute to a more pleasant way of life for people whenever and wherever they come together. NEC Dining Services is proud to provide restaurant-style food and services that are truly designed for your taste.
