Tuck offers a residential experience, which means community life extends beyond the classroom door.

Most single, first-year students live in on-campus residence halls and the rest live nearby, making spontaneous social events and shared activities a way of life. Second-year students live off campus in rental apartments and houses, many of which are passed down to successive groups of Tuck students from year to year.

Many students from both classes who have partners or children rent duplexes or town houses in Sachem Village, Dartmouth's graduate student housing complex.
