Living at Simmons University

A short walk from the main campus, Simmons's gated residence campus offers a private refuge in the heart of the city. Nine brick residence halls enclose a grassy quad where students relax or study on sunny days. Bartol Dining Hall, Holmes Sports Center, and the campus health center are located here.

Our residence halls offer special-interest housing, including a foodie floor, sports pride floor, arts floor, and wellness areas that emphasize holistic health. Handicapped accessible rooms are available, as well as rooms for visitors and commuter students needing the occasional overnight stay. All first-year students are guaranteed housing.

Fast facts:

  • Most rooms are doubles, some quadruples, singles, and triples
  • Free campus-wide Wifi and high-speed internet access is available in each room
  • Access to Xfinity online streaming
  • Additional amenities include laundry facilities, student kitchens, lounges with TVs, pianos, study rooms, a multi-faith prayer room, and a computer lab.
