Dominican College's Residence Halls offer rooms with many different configurations. Among the spaces available in the residence centers are computer labs, lounges, and meeting rooms. All dorm rooms are equipped with cable TV hookups and computer ports. The Residence Centers offer 24-hour front desk coverage, secured front doors, fire safety equipment including sprinklers, pull stations, fire extinguishers and strobe lights for the hearing impaired. There are smoke detectors in every room.

We are also proud of the exceptional standard of our Residence Life Program. Our facilities are more than just places to stay. As a resident, you'll also be part of a stimulating community where you can comfortably live and learn.
