Experience Life on Campus!
Almost half of Ellsworth’s nearly 1,000 students choose to live on campus, and for good reason! Walking to class is quick and easy, and there's no shortage of fun social and recreational activities throughout the year. Best of all, our residence halls are where lifelong friendships begin.
We think the residence hall experience is such an integral part of our students’ education that all of our full-time, first-year students who are under age 21 and not heads of households, or not living with their parents or guardians, are required to live on campus.
There are two residence halls and two apartment-style buildings on campus. Here's the breakdown:

Disability Housing Request
Do you have a physical disability or condition warranting special consideration in making your assignment? If YES, students requesting disability housing accommodations MUST register with Disability Services before housing accommodations may be provided. You must submit or complete the following information:
- Complete a housing application and submit a $200 prepayment (as all students do).
- Additionally, you will also need to complete any paperwork and/or procedures required for requesting special accommodations.
- This includes a request for an assistance animal in campus housing. See below.
