Kenyon is one of the few colleges in the U.S. where all students live on campus. As a first-year student, it’s your choice where you’ll live and learn—coed, single-sex, program housing, or even theme housing, which brings students together who share common interests, such as hiking, Buddhist meditation or creative writing.     

We believe that students should be able to live with any student(s) regardless of gender identity. Kenyon is one of 265 institutions nationwide—and one of 15 schools in Ohio—that provides open housing options for students. We also offer gender-specific housing for students who prefer that option.
