Housing & Dining

It’s not unusual to hear students referring to the Stonehill community as a family. Everyone who works, lives, studies, and teaches here is committed to maintaining a supportive and engaging atmosphere where students feel valued and empowered to be themselves.


More than 90 percent of students live on campus in a variety of residential settings. Our students quickly form a close community in an environment where, with the help and guidance of Residence Life staff, individual needs and desires are balanced with the common good.

In our living spaces, lifelong relationships are built among a diverse array of students. Right outside their doors, students discover a community that will open their eyes to different cultures and new ways of thinking.

Over their four years, Stonehill students have the opportunity to choose from traditional corridor-style residence halls, suites, and townhouses. Recreation areas, lounges, kitchens, study rooms, and free laundry complete an experience that helps each student feel right at home.

Special Interest Housing

Special interest housing enhances the connection between academic and residence life at Stonehill. By living with students who share similar interests, the opportunity arises to work toward shared goals. For example, we’ve had groups of students center their residential experience on the study of health and wellness, environmental sustainability and community service.

The application process begins in the spring and is competitive. Students who participate in special interested housing are counted on to enhance the residential experience for the entire community.

Campus Dining

Whether it’s fresh fruits and salads, delicious home-style entrées, or new creations by our chefs made for a variety of tastes, finding favorite foods on campus is easy.

Stonehill Dining Services offers a dining program complete with signature brands and menu selections that include just about every item imaginable. Plus, if there is a home-cooked favorite that you are craving, our chefs are eager to receive your family recipe!

Students have access to the full-service Roche Dining Commons, as well as grab-and-go items and fresh made items at The Hill and Ace’s Place. In addition, there’s a local-favorite Dunkin’ Donuts within the Shields Science Center and an Au Bon Pain in our new May Hall. A full-time dietitian is also available to point students in the right direction. It is our goal to make sure you can find something great to eat when you want it!
