The Major Perks of Living on Campus
When choosing a college, it’s crucial you can picture yourself not only learning there but living there. The undergraduate residential life and housing spaces across the 370-acre Babson campus are designed to be your home away from home, with options to fit your lifestyle and ensure you not only succeed but also enjoy your years on campus.
Home Away From Home
Living on campus is a rite of passage for most college students. The campus experience is an important piece of the full experience at Babson. And, finding out who your roommate is and eating your first meal at the dining hall are exciting!
Campus life is not just about forming bonds with hall mates or having a quick path to class, either (though those are two big ones!). It’s about the support that comes from having everything you need: from a friend to lean on to laundry onsite to health services, you will have everything nearby. The adjustment to college is a hard, but important, step you will take. Knowing you can easily reach out and whatever you need is just down the street will help you get your footing.
There are 18 traditional and suite-style rooms in our residence halls across the Babson campus, including several Living and Learning communities that let you room alongside others who share similar interests. From healthy living and the arts to entrepreneurship and service, you’re sure to find your people.
If you’ve ever tried to study on an empty stomach, you know how important it is to have healthy food options when you need them (plus, the occasional comfort food). Here, you’ll find everything from a not-your-average dining hall to restaurant-style and 24-hour grab-and-go choices.
It’s hard to pick a favorite spot on campus (trust us, you’ll see). But, there are several spots—Reynolds Campus Center, Babson World Globe, Babson Recreation and Athletics Complex—where you’ll become a regular. And, after a little time wandering the 370 wooded acres, you’re likely to find your own go-tos for quiet studying or hanging out.
