Housing Options

Honors Housing

Audet HouseCastleton University’s Honors Housing began in the Fall of 2013 and is currently located in Audet House. Students who live in Honors Housing will be able to take advantage of programming that is geared towards bridging the academic and residential experiences. Programming for Honors Housing promotes academic excellence (study sessions, stress relief activities, grad school fairs, etc.) and intellectual exploration (guest speakers, film screenings, discussions, etc.) Programming will be planned and executed by the Honors Housing Community Advisor (CA), Area Coordinator (AC), and members of the Honors Council, which is comprised of students, faculty, and staff and meets periodically to develop programming and suggest improvements to the Honors Program and housing. Honors Housing residents will be expected to attend and participate in both honors Council meetings and Honors Housing programming.

Honors Housing is an ideal fit for students in the Honors Program who have committed to prioritizing academics and make an effort to be role models for other students. Honors Housing is an optimal choice for students who are interested in living with other academically driven students in an environment that is conducive to learning and intellectually stimulating.

Wellness Housing

The primary goal of Wellness Housing is to provide students who are committed to pursuing a healthy, well-balanced lifestyle a common ground on which to live and learn more about wellness with other students. Wellness Housing will seek to provide students with an environment that is substance free and conducive to a holistic view of wellness. Students who live in Wellness Housing will be able to take advantage of programming that is geared towards bridging the residential experience with wellness education.

Wellness Housing is open to any and all interested students who are willing to commit to a substance free and wellness-committed lifestyle.

Service Housing 

The primary goal of Service Housing is to bring students closer to an understanding of community engagement, a core value of the university. Service Housing aims to help students learn more about why its important to be a good citizen and how they can give back to the community, both locally and globally. Service Housing will provide students who have a passion for community service and involvement the space and opportunity to join forces to give back to the community in creative ways.

Students who live in Service Housing will be able to take advantage of programming that is geared towards bridging our campus and local communities. Programming will be planned and executed by the Service Housing Community Advisor (CA), Area Coordinator (AC), and members of the Service Council, which is comprised of students, faculty, and staff and meets periodically to develop programming and suggest improvements to Service Housing. Service Housing residents will be expected to attend and participate in Service Council meetings and Service Housing programming. Additionally, residents will be required to complete 15 hours of community service per semester, which can be satisfied by attending house programming as well as on one’s own. Students will also work together to organize one house-wide service project per academic year.

Service Housing is open to any students who are interested in and committed to working with their peers to engage in the community in meaningful ways and widening their perspectives past their comfort zones. Additionally, students who are or who plan to complete the Civic Engagement Certificate program while at Castleton University would benefit greatly from choosing to live in Service Housing.

Gender Inclusive Housing

Housing assignments based on gender alone may not be appropriate for all students. By designating gender inclusive areas in our residence halls, a student is able to make the decision with whom they wish to live without regard to gender or gender identity. Castleton University offers the option of gender inclusive housing in multiple residence halls, with gender inclusive bathrooms and bedrooms on each floor of the designated building. This housing option is available to all students, new and current. 

Gender Inclusive housing is currently available in:

  • Ellis Hall - First floor
  • Hoff Hall - Second and Third floors
  • Babcock Hall - Second, Third, and Fourth floors
  • Foley Hall – Third floor
  • Gryphon Hall - Second Floor
