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.
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.
The towns surrounding Dartmouth offer many housing options. In New Hampshire, students tend to live in Hanover, Lebanon, West Lebanon, or Lyme. In Vermont, 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.
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 apartment floor plans and apply to live in Sachem via the Admitted Students website. The MBA Program Office will run a lottery and notify students on the apartment they have been assigned to in early May.
