The College of Mount Saint Vincent offers five residence halls to choose from. Living on campus is extremely convenient for students who wish to have easy access to classes, dining halls, the library, club meetings, the fitness center, and dance studio. It also gives students plenty of opportunities to mix and mingle with their fellow students at any given time. However, campus housing can be a burden to pay for and does not always provide the peace and cleanliness you may desire.
Students agree that Seton is the best place to live on campus, but it is only offered to upperclassmen. It comes fully equipped with communal kitchens, bathrooms, and lounges, just like the other four halls, but sets itself apart with its central air system and Italian Renaissance style. On the other hand, Alumnae was voted the worst place to reside due to its small size and unsanitary living conditions. As for location, none of the halls are really at an inconvenience because the campus is so small, so students are able to reach their classes easily, despite some minor complaints about the hills they must walk up and down.
