Residence Life

**The 2015-2016 Housing Selection information and forms are now available. Please visit our Current Residents site to find out more.**


Your residence hall will become the place you call home while at Doane. More than 80 percent of students have chosen to live on campus because of a dynamic environment which is both engaging and welcoming. You'll see on your campus visit that a Doane education is about much more than what you learn in the classroom.

It's a dynamic 24/7 experience where you are fully engaged in exploring new activities, interests, and adventures. You'll develop leadership skills and realize the huge impact you can have on the lives of the people, the communities, and the world around you.

And, in the process, you'll stock up on a lifetime of memories and relationships that only come from a residential college experience.
