Residential Curriculum

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.  Our educational priority outlines the learning students should expect from their residential experience through a variety of engagement strategies identified by the department.  

Our Educational Priority: Students living at Bentley University will become active organizational leaders engaged in their residential community. 

Students living in the residence halls will benefit from: 

  • Developing a sense of SELF
  • Building CONNECTIONS
  • Belonging to a COMMUNITY

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.
