Moving In


Your New Home


Student preparing to move in to dorm.

Freshman year at Elmira College is an important time to grow and learn more about yourself and your class. First-year students live together to allow the members of the newest class at Elmira College to develop unity and continuity from Freshman Orientation through Commencement four years later.

Our Residence Life staff receives special training to support students making the transition from secondary school to college.

You will have choices about where you would like to live. We try to place you in your first-choice building as a first year student, though it is not always possible. Our first year students are generally placed in Alumni, Anderson or Columbia Halls. Alumni and Anderson are co-ed buildings, while Columbia offers an all women's housing option. It has proven to be a supportive environment for our first year students to live together, while they are adjusting to college life and going through many of the same struggles and triumphs.

You will complete youf room selection form describing your desired living arrangements during your Summer Registration.
