Housing and Dining

Housing Information

Application deadline: June 5, 2017

First-year housing at Clark University is located in four buildings. Two are uniquely first-year and two are mixed classes. Wright Hall and Bullock Hall are traditional-style residence halls with singles, doubles and a limited number of triple rooms. They have newly renovated common spaces, wings for designated genders and bathrooms shared in common. Dana and Hughes Halls are located off of Alden Quad, near Dana Commons and houses both first-year and continuing students. Room sizes range from singles to triples and there are gender-neutral, single-use bathrooms throughout the center. Dodd Hall is a women's residence with a mix of first-year and continuing students.

We ask that you complete your housing and meal-plan signup by Monday, June 5, 2017. Some of you may desire specific accommodations based on items covered by the Americans with Disabilities Act. Please make sure to complete both the housing application and the supplemental housing request.

More Information

Dining Dollars — Yours to spend like cash at all Dining Services locations (Higgins Café, the Bistro, Jazzman's). Dining Dollars carry over from fall to spring, but any balance on the last day of the academic calendar is forfeited.

Take 3 — Also known as "swaps", Take 3 is designed as a quick meal on the go from a select menu in the Bistro. Swaps are deducted from your weekly Higgins Café meals. Dining plan participants are welcome to exchange one swap for one meal per meal period in the Bistro until 9 p.m., including the All Access Plan. Please remember that swaps are for the meal participant only as a convenience and are nontransferable.
