About Res Life

Living in a residence hall at Reed gives you a chance to become immersed in campus life. Our residences are more than just places to sleep or hang your clothes; they’re places to learn about yourself and others, to meet a variety of people from all over the country and world, and to be exposed to different lifestyles, ideas, and points of view. Student life in all residence halls is guided by the Honor Principle, which promotes self- governance and encourages students to be respectful of one another and of all community members.
