“I was looking for a small community…I have a lot of friends here and they are as close to me as family.”

Orson Sinclair ‘17

 Living on our waterfront campus in New London puts you in the right place to make real connections. Residence halls bring together living communities where people share a special interest, such as an academic drive, an athletic team or a common club. Would you like to have a focus for your floor? Whether it’s community service or quiet study time, leadership building or easy access to tutoring and advising, we’ve created a place for you. Would you like to design your own community? Fill a floor with your friends or team members to create your own community. We will help you do it!

Commuter Students

The process is simple.
Get started now

A few words on fit.


"Fit” is the modern buzzword of the college search process. And frankly, rightly so. As you consider your college experience, we encourage you to look for a place that feels right. It’s also a good idea to make a list of the qualities and characteristics that make a college and you a winning combination.


If you are looking for a college that: 


  • Gets to know and understand each student as a uniquely talented individual

  • Identifies potential and encourages students in very intentional ways

  • Fosters growth in each student, giving them a foundation for life and career success

  • Is small enough to deliver on the promise of a personalized experience

  • Goes beyond “career services” and offers a progressive 4-year career development model, partnering with local businesses and nonprofits for professional experience

  • Promotes an inclusive culture that encourages students to experiment in new clubs and activities

  • Is nationally recognized for its academic support systems, from professional content tutors (not students) to proven comprehensive support for students with learning differences

  • Connects students to service opportunities that impact their world

  • Is in a location that offers access to New England’s natural places and some of America’s greatest cities




…Mitchell College delivers in a powerful way.
