Wander around Dickinson and you’ll see a large number of red Adirondack chairs scattered across the campus.
Sometimes it’s a single chair a student has moved to a quiet place to work alone. Other times they’re in twos and threes where a couple of students have spent time catching up on The Daily Show. The red chairs are not only a school tradition; they also represent our strong sense of community. And it’s that type of engagement that allows our students to comfortably take a seat anywhere.
THE RESIDENTIAL EXPERIENCE
We're a residential college, so students live on campus all four years. From residence halls to apartments and suites to special-interest houses, learn more about the place you will call home.
Enjoy a morning coffee at the library's Biblio Cafe, meet a friend for lunch at The Quarry, or grab a bite in one of the HUB's diverse dining spots.

Dickinson College is located in Carlisle, a historic town in south central Pennsylvania. It is part of the metropolitan region of Harrisburg, the state capital. The 144-acre main campus is a few blocks from the center of town.
First-year students are assigned to live in one of two areas on campus: "Morgan Field" in Adams or Drayer or "The Quads" in Armstrong, Atwater, Baird-McClintock, Buchanan, Conway, Cooper, Davidson-Wilson, or Longsdorff. As a member of the first-year community, you will have the opportunity to participate in social activities, community service with a local community partner, attend a faculty dinner, and be able to serve in a leadership role through involvement in the Community Board.
Additionally, students live in close proximity to others in their first-year seminar or in a learning cluster by participating in a learning community. In the Fall semester, learning community programs are shaped by the First-Year Seminar Faculty working with Learning Community Coordinators.
