What is the intervisitation policy?
Saint Anselm College’s first year residence halls are not co-ed, but provide for intervisitation during specific times each day. All residence halls have a common lounge where guests may be received during non-intervisitation hours. Guests of residence halls of the opposite sex can visit beginning at 5:00pm.  These guests must leave by 11:00pm Sunday through Thursday and 2:00am Friday through Saturday.

Can I have a pet?
No pets, including fish, are allowed in the residence halls at any time.

How do I receive and send mail on campus?
All first year students are issued an available mailbox. To obtain a key for the box, a key can be purchased at the mailroom for $5.00/nonrefundable, lost keys are $5.00. That will be your mailbox for the entire stay at the College. You will be sent a newsletter that describes available services and hours.

Can I bring a refrigerator?
One fridge is allowed in each room and must be less than 40" high and no larger than 2.7 cubic feet.

What is the policy for automobiles?
First year students may have vehicles on campus, provided they purchase a permit and are restricted to parking in the Kavanaugh Extension Lot or the Baroody Lot at all times.

When will I find out more about my housing assignment as an incoming student?
Incoming students are requested to fill out the Housing Information Form they received in their Enrollment Packet and return it to the Office of Residential Life and Education. Your response will assist us in the selection of your future roommate(s).  The Office of Residential Life and Education does not encourage or guarantee roommate requests. We have found that roommates have a greater rate of success and a broader experience when they are matched together using information from our Housing Enrollment Form. We try to offer opportunities for students to make connections with a wide variety of students with differing academic interests, athletic teams, hometowns and life experiences.  Please fill out the Housing Enrollment Form regarding your own expectations and interests.  Be sure to include any additional information that may be helpful for us to know about you.

I've heard that some students are in triples their first year. Is this true of Saint Anselm College's residence halls?
Occasionally, new student enrollment exceeds the standard capacity for some residence halls. There may be a need to use some single rooms as double rooms, some double rooms as triple rooms and some triple rooms as quads. New students who are placed in these arrangements will receive a rebate monthly until this can be alleviated.

If you have any questions regarding residential living at Saint Anselm College, do not hesitate to call the Office of Residential Life and Education at (603) 222-4006.
