Chatham University

Housing & Residence Life

The Office of Residence Life & Student Activities - Student Affairs supports the mission of the University through a student-centered dedication to undergraduate and graduate education. We believe in:


Upper class students overwhelmingly agree that one of the best parts of living on campus as a First Year student is having a roommate. All incoming residential students complete a Roommate Survey once they are accepted to the University. The Office of Residence Life & Student Activities - Student Affairs matches roommates according to their study & sleep habits and co-curricular interests.

Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors may choose their own roommates each year at room selection. If you are an upperclass student returning to Chatham after a time away, or decide mid-year that you’d like to live on campus, please contact Residence Life at reslife@chatham.edu, 412-365-1518.
