There are a number of offices, services and departments on campus available to help you make the transition to college.
The Office of Accessibility Resources (OAR) aims to create an accessible campus experience by providing a point of coordination as well as resources and support for our students and the campus community.
Unlike high school, college students need to self-disclose their disability. Enrolled students who believe they have a need for disability-related accommodations are encouraged to register with OAR by completing the following steps:
- Self-identify to the OAR by completing an online registration form
- Submit disability documentation. Please refer to Stonehill’s Documentation Guidelines for guidance in providing documentation that will establish eligibility for reasonable accommodations.
- Schedule an intake interview via http://meetme.so/EileenBellemore or call us at 508-565-1033, preferably before the start of the semester.
Counseling Services offers free and confidential counseling for students.
Students seek support at counseling for a variety of reasons including but not limited to adjustment, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, relationship or interpersonal concerns, academic struggles, time/stress management, and identity exploration.
Typical services include:
- Short-term individual one-on-one counseling
- Case management support to coordinate care and navigate both on and off-campus resources
- Referral to psychiatric consultation
- Trainings and outreach programming
- Peer support and psychoeducational groups
- Urgent Support always available via our 24/7 Support Line, from anywhere, any time of day. Call 508-565-1331, Option 2.
We are eager to welcome our new students to campus. Please consult our Counseling Services website for updates and more information about our services, as well as pandemic-related precautions. Be sure to follow us on Instagram @stonehillcounselingservices for a variety of mental health and wellness tips, resources, and information on accessing support.
The Stonehill Dine Around Plan is designed to meet the diverse needs of our community by providing a base meal plan of $1,375, in a debit-style account, at the start of each semester. Students who live on campus are required to participate in The Dine Around Plan.
Unused base meal plan dollars from the fall semester roll over to the spring semester but are not refundable at the end of the academic year. Meal dollars can be added and are only valid at on-campus dining locations.
You also have the option to add Hill Dollars to your student account and these can be used supplement spending on campus and at participating off-campus locations.
Learn more about Dining Services at Stonehill.
Health Services offers free and confidential, appointment-based health services for full-time Stonehill College students during the academic year. Health Services is staffed by nurse practitioners, physician assistants and a part-time physician.
Learn more about Health Services, requirements for incoming students and the services provided.
The Stonehill IT webpages contain valuable information about technology, including a Get Started page. This page contains references to many helpful resources for new students, including information on your Stonehill account, managing your password, myHill and laptop recommendations, among others.
There is also informative documentation and training materials in a section called the Knowledge Base.
Office of Intercultural Affairs
The Office of Intercultural Affairs provide academic, cultural, and personal support to students - including students of color , first-generation college students, international students, and LGBTQ+ students - through developing intellectual, social and leadership skills.
Chosen (Preferred) Name
Stonehill College has a strong commitment to a diverse and inclusive environment where the dignity of each person within our community is respected and affirmed. The College also recognizes that some students and employees may prefer to use first names other than their legal name. To uphold this commitment, the College has developed a policy whereby any current student or employee may elect to use a chosen first name in interpersonal interactions and on campus records whenever applicable and appropriate.
This policy is applicable to changing of first names only and is not applicable for individuals requesting a last name change.
Chosen first name: a name that one may wish to use other than their legal first name to identify oneself.
Such examples include:
- People who use their middle name instead of their first name
- People who use anglicized names
- Names that affirm one’s gender identity
Legal first name: a name that appears on official records of identification, such as a person’s passport, driver’s license or government-issued identification cards, birth certificate, or U.S. social security card.
Students wishing to use a chosen first name must initiate this request with the Office of Intercultural Affairs. Employees of the college wishing to use a chosen first name must initiate this request with the Office of Human Resources.
Because the chosen name has to be updated manually, the process for a chosen name change may take up ten (10) business days.
The Office of Residence Life aims to provide an enriching residential experience by encouraging individual student development, and fostering a community of inclusivity, responsibility and compassion.
First-year students can now complete the online Housing Application on myHill. The deadline to apply for housing is July 15, 2021. Learn more about how to apply for housing as well as special interest housing options for first year students.
Shipping Items to School
Due to the extreme volume of packages received during the beginning of the semester, we request students to bring as many personal items with you to Campus rather than mailing them. We do understand there are certain circumstances that make this difficult and are available to work with you to ensure you have what you need.
Mail Services will be open Monday-Friday from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. for package retrieval and mailing services.
Recommended: Pack a Personal First Aid Kit
Being sick is never fun, especially when you are away from home. Stonehill Health Services is an excellent resource for students who need to make an appointment for evaluation of health related concerns. However, there will be times students will want access to certain first aid and symptom relief items in their residence room.
All students living on campus are encouraged to pack a “personal first aid kit” for personal use if they should feel unwell.
