The College provides residential facilities and a residence life program for its students. All students who have earned less than 90 hours or are under 21 years of age are required to live in residence halls unless they reside with their immediate family (parent, stepparent, brother or sister over the age of 21, grandparents and step-grandparents) living within a 50-mile radius of the College and are commuting from home.
Living on campus provides many developmental opportunities that result from the experience of living in a residence hall community. Programming in the residence halls on substance abuse, self-defense, wellness, and other issues also provide opportunities for personal growth and development. The College employs Resident Directors for the residence halls to oversee management of the facilities and to coordinate the residence life program. Students are employed as Resident Assistants to aid the Office of Student Services with general programming and residence life duties, as well as peer advising.
Walter W. Brown Hall
This new Freshman-only residence hall is the first step of a multiphase process designed to comprehensively elevate the quality of the on-campus residential experience for all students at Limestone. The College chose to begin its facility improvement campaign by focusing on providing an environment that optimizes a first-time student’s opportunity to thrive while enrolled at Limestone. By limiting the facility to freshmen, residents have the opportunity to develop a support structure from within a common peer group, which will help facilitate their transition to college life and, hopefully, encourage the creation of lifelong friendships that extend beyond their time at Limestone.
