Olin College of Engineering is nestled on 70 acres in Needham, Massachusetts, a suburb 14 miles west of Boston. The nearby campuses of Babson College, Wellesley College and Brandeis University, together with the proximity of Boston and Cambridge, afford students easy access to one of the world’s most bustling educational and technological hubs.
From the design studios to the robotics labs, our facilities are as integral a part of the Olin community as the people who use them. We place great importance on communal spaces, which help create the optimum learning environment by encouraging team-based, hands-on learning.
The campus’ five main buildings curve around a central green space that we call “the Oval,” which provides a space for students and faculty to come together. This sense of community is heightened due to the fact that nearly all Olin students live on campus in one of two residence halls.

Olin students are required to live on campus unless an exception is made by the dean of student life due to personal circumstances (e.g., for married students or students with families nearby).
Social conflicts are generally resolved informally; students can approach the honor board with a conflict only in extreme cases.
In addition, the Office of Student Life picks student "resident resources" (R2s) to fill the role traditionally played by resident assistants (RAs) at other schools. Unlike most RAs, R2s are not directly responsible for enforcing dorm policies.
