Living on campus is an integral part of a Geneseo education. The residence halls provide more than a bed to rest your head at night (or in the afternoon); they are places where you learn how to interact with and live with people who are different from you. This requires advocating for your own needs, listening to and respecting the needs of others (especially in times of conflict), and working with your roommates, suite-mates, hall-mates, and RA staff to build a network of support.
Scroll down to the list of residence halls by name to search amenities and accommodations for a specific building.
In addition to learning key communication skills that are valuable in your academic courses, your campus support network is key in navigating all aspects of your collegiate life: academic support, research, internships, clubs, organizations, student involvement, and much more!
All of our halls aim to create inclusive living and learning environments that promote wellbeing, where strong, diverse communities can grow and students can develop socially and academically. We do this by intentionally connecting learning inside the classroom to learning outside the classroom through our living-learning communities (LLCs). We have three different types of LLCs to meet the diverse interests and needs of our students. Click on the links to learn more about each type of LLC!
**Note: although each LLC has a distinct theme, each community investigates interdisciplinary themes and the intersectionality of topics and identities; students are more than welcome to apply to multiple LLCs and indicate your intersectional interest in your application!
Inquiry and Discovery LLCs focus on skills for Leadership, Mentorship, and Action through community engagement. These LLCs have credit-bearing courses and peer leadership opportunities as requirements.

Accessibility & Other Accommodations
We work closely with the Office of Accessibility Services to provide qualified students with disabilities (temporary or permanent) equal and comprehensive access to college-wide programs, services, and campus facilities. We work together to proactively provide, at no cost to the student, reasonable accommodations to ensure that no qualified student with a disability is denied equal access to, participation in, or benefit of the programs and activities of the Department of Residence Life. If you have questions about accommodations, please contact the Office of Accessibility Services, and they will work with our department.
