Living and Life on Campus
Prior to 20-21 about 65% of students live on campus throughout their four years at Purchase College, so our community is constantly infused with new faces, ideas and experiences. With options like student-directed learning communities, special interest housing, or becoming an RA, you’re sure to feel at home at Purchase College. Enjoy the convenience of all-inclusive living, while being steps away from academic buildings, student services and campus dining locations.
We’re Here to Help
The Office of Community Engagement encompasses the following areas of student life at Purchase College: New Student Orientation, Student Involvement, Commuter Students, Residence Life, Housing, Campus Traditions, and the Multicultural Center.
Our office creates personal and interpersonal opportunities that support students to become engaged, empowered citizens of an inclusive, diverse learning environment. We invite you to participate in educational and social experiences that are designed for all Purchase students. Engagement with the Purchase community will enhance your collegiate experience and enrich the overall campus environment.
The Office of Community Engagement seeks to create a safe and welcoming learning environment for all students—one that fosters their inclusion and participation in the campus community through services, programs, and meaningful partnerships.
