About Us

Be part of an amazing team!

The Campus Life team is the collaboration between the Office of Residence Life (ORL) and the Office of Student Leadership & Activities (OSLA). These two offices work together to bridge the gap between our academic and residence campuses by sharing resources and staff. With a foot on both campuses, we are accessible to the students wherever they go!

What are we about?

At Simmons College, the Office of Residence Life has based it's mission on the philosophy that living on campus enhances the academic, intellectual, and social development of each student. We strive to provide a welcoming environment for students from all backgrounds and the staff intentionally builds communities that value diversity, academic achievement, and personal growth.

Residence Life Professional Staff are a key component to the success of each hall. We seek to empower students to become leaders within the residence halls through Hall Council and the Resident Advisor position, and promote educational programming. Professional Staff act as resources for our Residence Campus students and provide a superior level of customer service.


Simmons believes that one of our best advantages is the low student-to-staff ratio. Students have access to Professional Staff who know them individually by name. Professional Staff are able to tailor programming needs to the demographic of each particular residence hall, and mentor caring, responsible Resident Advisors. This close knit community is what makes the Simmons on-campus experience a special place to grow as an individual.

The management team, including the Director of Residence Life, Assistant Director of ORL & OSLA, and Assistant Director of OSLA are essential to creating an environment where Professional Staff feel both challenged and supported as professionals.

Picture yourself here!

Two blocks from the main campus, the Simmons Residence Campus is a cozy oasis in the lively Fenway neighborhood. Traditional brick residence halls enclose a grassy, tree-lined quad where students study on sunny days.

Each residence hall has unique attributes that bring out a distinctive community each year within the halls - a source of pride for each year's residents. Empowering students to create their own opportunities for leadership and personal development is of utmost importance to the staff here at Simmons.

At Simmons, there is a housing option within our nine on-campus residence halls that allows us to fit almost every student's needs.
