Springfield College is a residential school and all students are required to live on campus for at least the first three years of their undergraduate experience. We explain everything you need to know about living on campus over on our housing page.

However, if you meet the requirements to be a commuter, you must then apply for commuter status through the Office of Undergraduate Admissions by June 28, 2020. Learn more about meeting the qualifications and applying below.
