Residence Life

Living at Unity College

Residence life expands your education beyond the classroom. Discover your talent for guitar-playing and two-part harmony. Share socks, backpacks, books. Discuss environmental ethics, canoes, camping gear, biofuel, ski wax and favorite fishing holes.

Did you know that TerraHaus was the first passive solar residence hall in the nation?

Nearly 70% of Unity College students live on campus, forming a close-knit and inclusive community. Our residence halls are relaxed and welcoming, with more doors open than closed. Diverse outlooks and backgrounds make life so much more interesting.

Residence Halls

Our campus community now offers nine residence halls, with the construction of the most recent addition, UnityThree, a living/learning community-style residence hall dedicated for first-year residents.

All residence halls are comfortable double and single rooms connected by common areas. Living on campus makes it easy to roll out of bed and get to class on time. It’s a snap to get to the library, dining center, and all of the great places to play.

Our residential facilities are safe, well maintained, attractive, comfortable, and functional. They are places to live, not just places to sleep. Our residential communities celebrate diversity and strong community involvement. Sustainability is also very important to our residential communities.

Residence Life Staff

The Office of Residence Life is staffed by the Housing Director, two Resident Directors and 15 Student Resident Advisors (RAs) who live in each residence hall. Each RA serves as a personal, cultural, and educational resource for students when outside the classroom.

Campus Safety

Our Campus Safety Office works to foster a safe and secure campus environment. Public safety officers are on duty and patrol the campus 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.


Exterior doors of all residence halls will be locked 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Residents may access their residence hall using their room key which is configured to open the exterior door. Residents who are locked out may call public safety at 207-509-7232. Students visiting other residence halls are considered guests and should seek access through the residents of the hall they are visiting.
