Future Students

Welcome to Residence Life at Rocky Mountain College

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.

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.
