Residential Life

At its core, Whittier College is a strong and vibrant residential community, comprised of scholars, athletes, artists, performers, volunteers, and leaders, hailing from both this country and abroad.

Living in Whittier's residential campus community, students will find their pursuit of knowledge enhanced, their range of cultural and social opportunities expanded, and will learn more about themselves and others than ever imagined. In the residence halls, lifelong friendships take root, and the experience can engender a whole new definition of "family" and "home."

The paramount mission of our residential life program is to provide a quality, safe living-learning environment in which all cultures are embraced and the academic success of each student is supported through opportunities to continue learning outside the traditional classroom.

One of the main program goals is to provide excellent customer service, expediently addressing residents' needs and concerns, therefore ensuring the best possible residential life experience at Whittier College.
