Housing Options

Your Home Away From Home. That is what we strive to create here at Bloomfield College. The Residential Education and Housing department works hard to make sure that your time spent living on campus is engaging, happy, healthy and safe.

Campus Housing

Applying for On Campus Housing

All Students interested in living on campus must have full-time student status (3 course units = 12 credits). With the exception of first semester students, admittance to residence facilities will be based on academic performance, good citizenship, and the discretion of the Director of Residential Education & Housing (first year/transfer students will complete a form provided by the Admissions Office and submit a $250 non-refundable resident deposit). First-year students that complete the appropriate form and remit the $250 non-refundable resident deposit are not guaranteed residence on campus. Housing assignments are prioritized by commuting distance to and from the College.

What To Bring Housing Checklist

Most often, students bring more than they realistically need their first semester at college. Many students end up sending half of their belongings back home! To help our students realistically pack for college, we're created a list that highlights the most commonly needed (and often forgotten!) things to pack. Please check your MyBloomfield page for more information. Remember, college is both an academic and social experience. Be prepared to work hard and achieve high standards, but also enjoy all that college life has to offer!
