First Year & Transfer Student Information
Welcome to Stonehill College!
Fall 2023 Housing Process
Housing applications for first-year and transfer students will be live on myHousing on May 5, 2023.
Incoming First Year Students:
Do you have a specific person (or two, or three) in mind to room with?
Incoming first-year students can roommate match with up to three other members of the class of 2027. Once you have all submitted your housing applications, you will be able to search for your desired roommate(s) by name on MyHill > MyHousing > Roommate Selection.
You can then send a request to match as roommates. You must each send and accept a roommate request. (If you are matching with two or three roommates to share a triple or a quad, you must send and accept two or three roommate requests.)
Roommate matching for members of the Class of 2027 will open May 8, 2023 and is due July 5, 2023 (the same day the housing application is due).
If you are entering Stonehill as a member of the class of 2026, 2025, or 2024 and have a specific student in mind you would like to room with (whether they are a returning Stonehill student or a fellow transfer student), you should each contact the Residence Life Office and request to be matched as roommates.
Students with a documented disability may request specific housing accommodations through Accessibility Resources.
The application deadline for new students is Thursday, June 15th.
Students will hear about the status of their application shortly before housing assignments are released in the first week of August.

While the majority of student bedrooms on campus are doubles, we do have a number of triples (rooms designed for 3 people), and quads (rooms designed for 4 people). Your student may be assigned to any of these room types. All rooms have one complete set of furniture for each student. Room and board charges are the same for all rooms.
First-year students living on campus may find themselves assigned to two or three roommates. Rooms designed as natural triples and quads have been built and designed to accommodate three or four people. Students who are assigned to triples or quads usually have positive experiences, despite initial concerns about living with multiple roommates!
New-student room assignments will be posted on myHousing during the first week of August. In addition to receiving their building and room assignments, students will also receive the names and email address of their assigned roommate(s). We strongly encourage students to contact one another prior to opening day in the fall so that they can “break the ice” and share information about the items that each person intends to bring. Assignment notices also contain important information about moving onto campus and the orientation that will take place after they have checked into their rooms.
First-Year students are randomly placed by our Office, expect for the following reason:
- Students who have been accepted into a Special Interest Housing community are placed in those respective areas by our Office.
Residence Life offers a wide variety of Special Interest Housing communities for all class years.
During the first few weeks of school, it is only natural that some students will feel homesick and call home asking their parents to pick them up for the weekend. Students miss their family, friends and significant others. But before you decide to pick them up for the weekend, keep in mind that it is important for students to begin forming relationships with other students on campus. If your son or daughter leaves campus every weekend, the adjustment may prove to be more difficult. While the other students in the hall are getting to know each other over the weekend, a student at home during that time may become more isolated. Try to encourage your son or daughter to get involved in campus life by attending weekend programs, volunteering for a service project or joining a student organization that focuses on his or her personal interest. These are great ways to meet others who share similar interests and to make new friends. You will notice great improvements each time you see your son or daughter.
Students can log into myHill to register their guest. A guest can be defined as a non-student, a family member, an alumnus, or another Stonehill student not assigned to a particular room.
The Office of Residence Life is dedicated to providing students a supportive and inclusive living environment that enhances their Stonehill experience. Students can select from a wide range of living options at Stonehill, ranging from traditional corridor style halls to suites and townhouses, to single-gender residence halls.
