Residence Life and Housing

Herkimer College provides students the opportunity to enhance their academic experience by being contributing members of their residential community. By living on campus, students are able to establish a sense of belonging, develop critical thinking skills, make ethical decisions, and assume self-responsibility.

The Herkimer College Housing Corporation manages residence life and housing. There are three on-campus residential communities for students (College Hill, Campus Meadows and Reservoir Run), with a total occupancy of just over 600 students.

Each residential community has a live-in staff member to assist the students residing in that building/community. Resident assistants are fellow students who also live in each apartment building and are responsible for the supervision of that building. They are trained as counselors, community builders, problem-solvers and activity planners. Area coordinators are full-time, live-in professional staff members who supervise the resident assistants and have overall management responsibility for a specific community. The entire housing and residence life function is managed by the Director of Residence Life.

Each apartment is completely furnished and includes a refrigerator, stove/oven, dishwasher and garbage disposal. Each apartment is also equipped with cable service and high speed internet.
