Residential Life

Harvey Mudd College is a residential campus where students learn and collaborate together inside and outside of the classroom. Ninety-nine percent of students live on campus all four years, creating an energetic, supportive community.

Residential Life Learning Outcomes

The Office of Residential Life provides programs and services that support the academic mission of the College and the Standards of Conduct within the HMC Honor Code. Residential Life strives to foster a diverse and collaborative residential environment where community members share in intellectual exchange, broaden their personal understanding of themselves, and contribute responsibly to the development of their community. To that end, Residential Life has adopted the following learning outcomes for students:

Students will live in a diverse and complex community as engaged citizens showing individual and social responsibility

  • Students will learn and practice thoughtful respect for the rights of others as they engage in a co-curricular environment with students, faculty, and staff.
  • Students will be prompted to engage in intellectual exchange and to practice effective and civil communication skills in various contexts.
  • Students will advocate for members of their community and appropriately challenge irresponsible, unjust, or uncivil behavior.

Students will learn to explore their personal identities and form an understanding of self in relation to others

  • Students will be empowered to examine multidimensional issues and confidently live out their own values and perspectives.
  • Students will recognize differences in each other and successfully interact within those differences.
  • Students will practice behaviors that promote honesty and integrity and will be encouraged to act consistent with those values.

Students will contribute to the development of their community aligned with the values espoused in the Honor Code.

  • Students will understand the context and impact of their actions on the lives of others while also observing standards of conduct within the community.
  • Students will practice behaviors that promote personal responsibility, wellness, and reduce risks for themselves and their community.
