The Office of Residence Life strives to cultivate a fun, social, and respectful home away from home for our residents. In doing so, our office integrates the core values of Regis College’s mission within events, conversation, and role modeling. Throughout the academic year, all 26 Resident Assistants are tasked to build strong, supportive, and inclusive communities by incorporating the following tasks into their respective residence halls:

Students in Regis' Honors Program have the opportunity to live in community to build and foster academic engagement and civic responsibility in the residence halls. Upper class students have the option to live with another student in the Honors Program in College Hall. Throughout the year, these learning communities become active members of the university community through educational presentations, community service opportunities, and informal programming.
Adulting 101 is a monthly event focused on life after graduation. Transitioning out of the residence halls and college can be challenging, but it is our hope that Adulting 101 will encourage conversations about the next steps of our students’ journeys. All students are welcome to attend. Previous topics have focused on Financial Literacy, Health Insurance, Apartment Searching, Preparing for your first full-time job, and more. If you have questions or suggestions about the Adulting 101 program, please reach out to Jim Wildason:
