Residential Education

One of the fundamental charges of the Bentley University Residential Center is to ensure that learning remains a pivotal part of the residential experience. Each residence hall on campus plays an important role in promoting students’ social, emotional, and intellectual development.  We strive to foster atmospheres within our residence halls that help students expand upon their academic experiences in the classroom.  The outcomes below represent the learning students should expect from their residential experience through a variety of engagement strategies identified by the department.  By living within the residence halls, students will be able to:

  • Critical Thinking and Conduct
  • Interpersonal and Intrapersonal Skills
  • Diverse Interactions and Social Justice
  • Connection to the Curriculum and University Resources

Residence Hall Association

Our Residence Hall Association (RHA) represents students who live on campus through legislation, committees and policy development, as well as working closely with campus administrators to address issues of concern. You can voice your opinion on any issue by attending a General Board meeting or contacting any active member of the RHA.
