Accomodation - Princeton
Princeton's five residential colleges, where freshmen and sophomores live and eat, offer students close-knit and dynamic living situations with many opportunities for building a community of friends. The resources provided at the colleges -- from cultural events to intramural sports to study breaks -- help students pursue their interests and get involved.
Currently, most upperclass students live in individual dormitories that are not part of a residential college and choose from a variety of dining options, including taking their meals at one of the 11 historic coed eating clubs along Prospect Avenue or joining cooperative residences, where students prepare meals in groups or individually.
Starting in 2007, the residential college system will be expanded and enriched to include more upperclass students and a new residential college. Coinciding with a planned increase in the student body of 11 percent, three of the six residential colleges will become all-class residences and house approximately 400 freshmen and sophomores, 100 juniors and seniors, and 10 graduate students. The other three residential colleges will continue to house only freshmen and sophomores.
