Dartmouth Designates New House Communities

Dartmouth College is beginning its transition to a new residential model designed to provide students with more continuity when living on campus and greater interaction with faculty beyond the classroom. The move to a residential college system was among the changes President Philip Hanlon announced in January to address problems such as high-risk drinking, sexual assault and a lack of inclusion.

Since then, Dartmouth has designed the six "houses" that will provide permanent home bases for all undergraduates beginning in the fall of 2016 and appointed house professors.

This month, all students who will return next fall will be asked to identify one to five students with whom they would share a house community. That option is only being made available for this transition year.
