Garrett College offers students two distinctive styles of residential living. Our conveniently-located residence halls include Garrett Hall and Laker Hall, both just a short walk from our main campus and the Community Aquatics & Recreational Complex (CARC) fitness facility.

The Office of Residence Life and staff strive to provide Garrett College students with a safe and enjoyable living environment, conducive to academic success, community development and personal growth. We endeavor to develop a sense of community and citizenship among residents living in the halls as well as teach students about the rights and responsibilities of living in a community. We accomplish this task by promoting respect, empowering students to positively affect the community, advocating and adapting to the changing needs of students, and providing programs and experiences to complement their academic and personal goals.

The residence halls at Garrett College are intended to be a place for students to live on campus where they can work toward achieving their academic goals. As a result, all residential students must be in good academic standing in order to live in the residence halls.
