On behalf of the entire staff of Residential Life and Housing, welcome to New England College! We are very excited you are joining our community. We are a close knit campus and the staff’s primary focus is to help you create your “home away from home” during your time at NEC. 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. All the Residential Life and Housing staff is committed to making your out of classroom experience be the best it can be.
Each of our 8 residence halls are staff by live-in professional Area Coordinators, Graduate Hall Directors, and highly trained upperclass students who serve as Resident Advisors. The in-hall staff are here to assist all students with day to day issues that may arise in the residence halls. Please do not hesitate to contact one of them should you need assistance, advice, or you just need someone to talk to. In addition, Resident Advisors plan social and educational programs for all residents. We encourage you to get involved in your residential community by attending the programs that the staff provides in the residence halls. Not only will you meet some new friends, you will have a lot of fun.
All New England College students are encouraged to get involved on campus as well as in their residence hall. There are numerous opportunities to become engaged in over 50 student clubs and organizations. In addition, 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. Please do not hesitate to contact me directly should you have any questions. On behalf of everyone in Residential Life and Housing, we welcome you and wish you a successful and rewarding journey during your time here at NEC.
