The majority of Pitzer students live in six residence halls on campus. Residence living enables students to share intellectual and educational pursuits while learning to live within a diverse community. It provides opportunities for individual growth through community involvement, interpersonal relationships, and social interaction. Pitzer College requires that all full-time first-year, sophomore, junior, and senior students live on campus and enter into a residency agreement each academic year when enrolled at the College.
Each of the residence halls have trained, live-in Residence Directors who are full-time professional staff members responsible for coordinating and overseeing hall activities including programming, advising on academic and personal concerns, supervising and coordinating student staff, working with hall council, and daily operations. All staff members are readily available to students, while a member of each hall staff is on call at all times.
