Office of Residence Life

The Office of Residence Life is dedicated to supporting our student body and the mission of McDaniel College. We believe that the education described by the First Principles goes beyond the academic classroom experience here at McDaniel. Learning to think and act critically, taking charge of your life to develop your unique potential, expressing yourself for your own satisfaction as well as the larger community, and sharing responsibility for the common good are all lessons that are enhanced by living on campus amongst your peers.  It is our goal to have the students leave the residence halls having learned something beyond their coursework here at McDaniel College.  Learning

Residence Life staff provide students with information and referrals to campus resources, educational programming in the halls, social gatherings to let the residence halls achieve a sense of community, assistance for individual students experiencing challenges, and a network of support for our residents at their home away from home.
