Planning to make Salem your new “home away from home” is an exciting transition. Your first step is to complete a Housing Questionnaire. Towards the end of June, you will receive your roommate and residence hall room assignment!
Clewell Hall is the first-year housing option in the heart of campus! Clewell is located near the Student Center and has recently updated air conditioning, painted hallways, and lounges. Transfer students may also be assigned to Gramley Hall, which also houses upperclass students.
Your Community at Salem
One of the great things about Salem College is that there is always someone for you to turn to with a question or just to talk.
Area Coordinators (ACs) are full-time, professional staff members who are responsible for the general management and supervision of your residence hall while providing support in response to community concerns. Your Area Coordinator is there to assist you with academic, personal, and social concerns.
Resident Assistants (RAs) are trained student staff who live with you on your hall and assist you during the year. Your RA is there to make your adjustment to college easier and to serve as a source for general information about residence hall living and campus events. Your RA will work with you and your hallmates to plan programs and events throughout the year.
Your Residence Hall will have a lobby and a lounge. The lobby is off the main entrance and is used to entertain guests. The lounge, on the basement level of the building, has televisions, a pool table and a ping-pong table. Lounges are typically used as gathering places for meetings and as a place to study. All residence halls have common kitchen spaces, and each floor has a microwave for students’ use. Vending and ice machines are also located in a central area in each building. Each residence hall has laundry facilities with machines that are free for students.
