Housing Selection will begin the week of April 21st. With that in mind, Residence Life wanted to update you on our plans for campus housing for the 2015-2016 academic year.
The following halls will be open to the same class year of students that have lived there in years past: Birchmont, Cliff, Gloucester, Hale, Hawthorne, Kennedy, Ledge, Manchester, the Mods, Rockport, Tower, Trexler, Williston, & Woodside.
Our newest residence hall, Standish Hall, will open its doors to welcome students this fall. The units in Standish are each equipped with 2 bathrooms, a kitchen, a living room and laundry machines. Standish will also feature the following:
- Apartment style living for 294 upper-class students in the following configurations:
- 6 person units with 2 doubles and 2 singles
- 4 person apartments with one double and 2 singles OR 2 doubles
- A community based student conduct board for alleged violations of policy
In an effort to offer a reduced number of built up rooms for sophomore students and above, we have reconfigured several of our existing halls for the coming year including the following:
- Marblehead Hall will not have any built up rooms.
- Endicott Hall will be de-tripled to the best of our ability.
- Bayview Hall will house first year and sophomore students. Sophomores will be housed in standard doubles/triples (not in built up rooms) to the best of our ability.
- Beacon Hall, Brooks Hall, Rogers Hall (with significant renovations scheduled for this summer), & Winthrop Hall will be upper-class student areas.
- Alhambra, Brindle, Hamilton, Reynolds, Stoneridge and half of Bayview, will be first year buildings. Stoneridge Hall will be a built up hall for first year students in order to de-triple housing for the upper-class students.
- Wenham & Hamilton will continue to be Healthy Living residence halls.
- Beverly Town Homes will still be an offsite option (shuttle transportation will not be provided).
- Essex House will house students involved in ROTC.
- Farmhouse and the Rantoul Street Apartments (Burnham & Enterprise) will no longer be part of Endicott housing.

Residence Life Overview
The Office of Residence Life is dedicated to working with students to create a lively, unique, and civil residential community that complements the academic mission of the College.
Our residential communities provide an opportunity for students to meet and form connections with fellow students. Through these interactions, our hope is that residents will develop lifelong friendships and will be encouraged to grow and learn about themselves. The Residence Life staff is made up of active, enthusiastic, and committed Endicott community members who work with individual residents and the community as a whole to make each hall feel like home.
Each residential community is a collective effort of the staff and the residents - a place where everyone can live and learn together. An important principle guiding community living is fostering the concept of individual freedom and accountability - one which encourages students to clearly articulate their needs and then join together to work toward mutually beneficial solutions. The halls are a place for residents to develop leadership skills, engage in stimulating discussions, learn from others in a multicultural context, and of course, have fun!
Our goal is for residents to leave Endicott feeling they have developed the skills and experience needed to be successful in our increasingly complex society.
In alignment with Endicott’s commitment to the development of the whole student; the Office of Residence Life is committed to providing a healthy and supportive living environment that promotes academic success and personal growth of residential students. The Residence Life staff is committed to fostering a sense of community and responsibility as well as providing opportunities for students to become contributing and engaged members of a diverse and ever changing global society.
1.) Develop strategies to support the academic mission.
2.) To empower residents to pursue personal growth through student engagement and the exploration of knowledge.
3.) Provide a safe, supportive and healthy living environment where all students are known, valued and have an understanding of sensitivity and respect as integral parts of community development and awareness.
4.) To support students through their college experience in the development of professionalism and life skills.
