Housing & Residence Life


Live on campus!

More than 400 of Ellsworth’s nearly 1,000 students live on campus. They’ll tell you there are lots of activities to do, and that living on campus makes the walk to class easy and quick. Students will also say those lasting friendships are made from all the housing activities held throughout the year.

The goal of the residence life program at Ellsworth Community College is to help you grow as a person and be ready for that next step in your life.

Because the residence hall experience is an integral part of our students’ education, all 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. By learning to live and work effectively with fellow residents, students become better citizens.

There are two residence halls and two apartment-style buildings on campus. Wall Hall houses 104 students and is co-ed. Thompson Hall houses 192 male students. The College Apartments house 76 students in a co-ed environment, and the College Suites house 39 students in co-ed suites and three single units. Coming soon: the Duane and Phillis Lloyd Residence Hall, coming fall 2022, will have a combination of single and double rooms.

Become a Resident Assistant

Resident Assistants live in the residence halls and are responsible for 25-45 residents. RAs serve as advisors to the residents of the hall, are sources of information about College life, and assist in stimulating educational, cultural, social, and recreational programming in the residence halls. Additionally, RAs on duty responsibilities are approximately 1-2 times per week (depending on the building) and some weekends. RAs must maintain a 3.0 GPA and receive room and partial board (single room when available).
