Residential Life

Tuck students don't scatter after classes are over, whether they live on or off campus.

More than half of 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.

On-Campus Housing

Tuck offers comfortable, state-of-the art residential facilities designed with mature students and executives in mind. Only single students are eligible to live in the residence halls. Since demand often exceeds supply, our 145 rooms on campus are allocated through a lottery.

Off-Campus Housing

The towns surrounding Dartmouth offer many housing options. In New Hampshire, students tend to live in Hanover, Lebanon, West Lebanon, or Lyme. In Vermont—just across the Connecticut River—Norwich, Wilder, and White River Junction are popular locations. Advance Transit provides a free public bus service between the Dartmouth campus and nearby communities. Buses are equipped with wheelchair lifts and bicycle racks.

Dartmouth Housing

Sachem Village located off Route 10 just south of Hanover, provides reasonably priced housing for many Dartmouth graduate students. Sachem offers one-, two- and three-bedroom apartment homes. Applicants can view available apartments, the dates when those apartments will be available for move in, and submit an application specific to the apartment home they choose. Visit the Dartmouth College Real Estate Office website.

Private Housing
