About Residential Life and Housing
There are more than 1,750 graduate and undergraduate students who reside in the University's nine residence halls and fourteen houses, including five graduate student houses.
The goal of the Residential Life and Housing (RLH) Office is to provide a living environment that allows for academic pursuits, interpersonal interactions, educational opportunities and social events. The environment created is intended to encourage freedom of action and self-expression within the context of community responsibility.
The Office of Residential Life and Housing at Clark University is committed to the development of an inclusive and affirming environment where all residents are appreciated and valued. Residential Communities at Clark University celebrate and embrace the varying identities of our students related to race, color, religion, age, national and ethnic origin, ability, status as a veteran, language, socioeconomic background, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, and political ideology. It is the shared responsibility of all members of our community to support an inclusive environment. We believe every individual deserves to be treated with dignity and respect and we will respond to any behavior that seeks to discriminate against or target an individual or group based on their identity.
This diversity within our residential communities is an essential part of the living-learning environment and helps our residents foster a greater understanding of the human condition and the world in which we live. Therefore, we seek to reflect the diversity of our community within both student and professional staff.
As diversity and inclusion are continually evolving principles, we commit ourselves to learn and grow along with our residents as we work to achieve our vision of a fair and inclusive residential environment.
