Welcome to Residence Life and Health Education at Bates College!

The Office of Residence Life and Health Education oversees many aspects of residential life at Bates. We assign incoming first-years to rooms and roommates and oversee all aspects of student room selection.

First-Year Students

Incoming first-year students are encouraged to follow the link to our First-Year Housing page and explore the various housing options that Bates has to offer.


Upper-class Students

Upper-class students are invited to review these pages for more information on Bates housing options and policies.
