- The families of the Master and Dean live in the college in designated apartments. These families often eat in the college dining hall and even keep their pets in the college!
- Master's Teas are offered by all of the residential colleges during the academic year. The college brings in an influential, famous, or just downright interesting person for students to listen to and ask questions of. Past Master's Tea guests have included Alec Baldwin, Jodie Foster, Denzel Washington, and Judy Blume, as well as world leaders in sustainability, international relations, journalism, and politics.
- Though students are randomly assigned to residential colleges, if one of their relatives was or is in a particular residential college, students can choose to be or choose not to be assigned to that college.
- Most freshmen live in the freshman dorm quad (known as "Old Campus") with other students from their particular college. These dorms are arranged into single-sex suites on single-sex floors that can accommodate four to six freshmen in the 10 buildings that make uip Old Campus, which is located directly in the center of the University. Each entrance to each hall has a different name (such as Lanman-Wright or Bingham) and can only be accessed by students who live in that entryway.
