Residence Life

We know that residential life is a monumental part of the college experience — more than 70% of our students live on campus. Carthage’s 11 residence halls offer easy access to educational programs, leadership opportunities, and a full calendar of social activities.

The Oaks Residential Village is the College’s newest housing option. Six villas offer private rooms and baths in suite arrangements. Each room has a stunning view of Lake Michigan or a beautiful wooded area.

Traditional residence halls include Madrigrano, Tarble, Johnson, Denhart, and Swenson halls. Each hall has its own personality and traditions, from Denhart’s annual head-shaving fundraiser for St. Baldrick’s Day to Johnson’s “Haunted Halls,” a Halloween favorite.
