Welcome to Residence Life at Rocky Mountain College

Your Home Away from Home

No matter where you live on the RMC campus, you are about to become part of a close community. In our residence halls, you will build close relationships and create memories that will last a lifetime. Just as you will learn and grow through your classes, you will enrich your life through the activities, friendships and fun of residence hall living.

What to Expect...

Residence halls are more than a place to sleep; they are living-learning communities full of opportunities for you to make friends and expand your horizons. The Residence Life Staff will be there every step of the way to assist you. We look forward to meeting you and enhancing your educational experience.

Rocky Mountain College students are required to live on campus for two years.

Please do not bring any of these items with you. For a complete list of items not permitted in the residence halls, please see the Residence Hall Policy Handbook.

Once you have arrived on campus, here are some helpful hints that will make your transition a smooth and positive one: 

  • Anderson and Widenhouse Halls are on the east end of campus. Jorgenson and Rimview Halls are found on the west end of campus (access via 17th Street West).
  • Attend all orientation activities. They will familiarize you with the campus and staff, making your transition most successful.
  • Meet as many people as possible during your first few days at school. You will find that many people have the same aspirations and interests that you do.
  • Get to know your Resident Assistant (RA) and Residence Hall Director (RD). They will prove to be great friends and resources throughout the year.
  • Internet info: All students are eligible for high speed Internet access free of charge. Your email address will consist of your first name.last name@rocky.edu.
    • Example: john.smith@rocky.edu
    • After arriving to campus, the student must activate the Internet connection. If difficulties arise, contact the academic computing office at 406.657.1161 or in Eaton Hall 2A.
