Housing at Vassar
Nine traditional houses (Main, Strong, Raymond, Davison, Lathrop, Jewett, Josselyn, Cushing, and Noyes), each housing between 170 and 350 students, accommodate the majority of first-, second-, and third-year students at Vassar. One cooperative house, the Dexter M. Ferry Cooperative House, where students are responsible for their own food shopping, preparation, and clean-up, accommodates 20 students. Most fourth-year (and some third-year) students live in one of the college’s three apartment complexes—the Terrace Apartments, the Town Houses, and the South Commons.
98% of Vassar students live on campus in either the residence halls or the apartment complexes. Students who wish to live off campus or to request other special accommodations must acquire approval through the Office of Residential Life.
Student rooms, including those in the apartment complexes, are furnished with basic needs—bed, dresser, desk/chair. All student rooms have both wired and wireless connection to the Internet, and all houses also have computer clusters for general use. The houses also have kitchen facilities, parlors, multipurpose rooms for house activities, television rooms, and laundry facilities.
