Welcome to Residence Life

Eckerd College has eleven residential complexes for student housing consisting of nine complexes with four houses of 34-36 students including the newly constructed Iota complex, 16 eight person suites in Nu Dorm, 33 four and five person apartments with living room and kitchen in Omega, and 60 double occupancy rooms with private bath in Sigma. Most of the student residences overlook the water. Each residence unit has a student Residential Advisor (R.A.) who is available for basic academic and personal counseling and is generally responsible for the residence. Resident Advisors and student residents are supported by full-time professional residence life staff living on campus.

ResLife Mission Statement
