Housing & Dining


One of Princeton's defining characteristics is its small, residential community for undergraduate and graduate students. Nearly all of the University's undergraduates and 70 percent of the graduate students live on our beautiful campus, which creates a close-knit environment for living, studying and relaxing.

Students from the University of Cambridge and the Chinese University of Hong Kong visited Princeton this fall as part of a residential college exchange program. During the spring, Princeton undergraduates were hosted by students at those two universities.

Residential Colleges

As an admitted student, one of the most exciting moments is learning which residential college you will call home — , Forbes, , Rockefeller, or . Each college offers a sense of community through its unique subculture.

When you arrive at your residential college, you'll be greeted by a team ready to support you in your academic and personal endeavors. Each college has a faculty head, dean, director of studies and director of student life. Undergraduates also receive support and guidance from residential college advisers, who are upperclassmen, and resident graduate students. While each college is architecturally distinctive, they all contain dining halls, common rooms, laundry rooms, academic spaces, and arts and entertainment resources.

Residential colleges are the center of residential life on campus. The colleges are where you'll meet some of your closest friends, share meals with professors, learn new skillsets and more. Throughout the year, colleges interact with each other through spirited competitions, social events, study breaks and intramural sports, all of which help to define University life.

At the end of your sophomore year, you'll decide whether to continue living in a residential college or move into upperclass housing. Either way, the relationships you develop at your college will follow you throughout your undergraduate experience and beyond. In fact, you'll return to your home college to receive your diploma.
