At Bucknell, we're reinventing what it means to live on campus.

We offer you a range of housing options so that you can find the one that's best for you.

First-year students, regardless of major, can choose to live in any one of our nine Residential Colleges. You'll live in a hall together, go on trips, serve your community and broaden your perspectives.

As a first year, sophomore, junior or senior, you can choose to live in a themed residence called an Affinity House. This innovative living experience allows a group of students to reside together in one of our 12 small houses across campus. 

You can also choose from traditional residence halls and apartment-style housing — the choice is yours.

Living Off Campus

Each year, a limited number of seniors may be allowed to live off campus with approval from Housing Services. Graduate and non-traditional students are also permitted to live off campus.
