Sophomore Housing

College Hill

Sophomore year at RISD is a transitional period for students as they navigate their major degree program. To support this transition, we offer designated sophomore area communities. These communities provide students with a close-knit, independent living experience. Students living in a sophomore area can navigate their new majors together while forging new connections and pathways for success. They also benefit from targeting programs and events that help them develop concrete connections between academic and extracurricular experiences.

All rising sophomores are given priority housing selection to choose rooms in sophomore area communities in the residence halls listed below.
