Residence Halls and Houses

Students entering college for the first time must live on campus for their first four semesters at Clark. Exceptions to this must be granted by the Office of Residential Life and Housing, and are only made if the student will be living with a parent or legal guardian, and the primary abode is within the Worcester city limits.

Students who transfer into Clark as juniors or seniors are not required to live on campus, but are certainly invited to. Those who transfer in as first-years or sophomores must live on campus until junior status is reached. Students reaching junior status in the middle of the year, however, are reminded that their housing contract extends through the academic year, and they must remain on campus for the entire year. Questions about this policy should be directed to the Office of Residential Life and Housing.
