Living and learning. At Dartmouth, you’ll be part of a close-knit community that’s anchored by campus life. Whether in the undergraduate residence halls or the graduate student apartments near campus, you’re always near friends and faculty.

Religious & Spiritual Life

Find meaning. Seeking answers to life’s big questions doesn’t end in the classroom. At Dartmouth, you can engage in discourse about meaning, explore spirituality, and practice your faith through the resources of the Tucker Center for Spiritual and Ethical Life.

Students dining in Commons

Pick your own. Locally sourced foods, specialty dishes, vegan and veggie options, brick oven pizza. Choose from a variety of cuisines prepared by Dartmouth’s award-winning food service at several dining areas and cafés, including four in Dartmouth’s dining hub, the Class of 1953 Commons.


Dartmouth is committed to ensuring that its programs, services, and activities are accessible to all. Disability-related accommodations are delivered through a network of established programs and offices that serve undergraduate, graduate, and professional school students, faculty, staff, visitors, and guests. Accommodation needs and inquiries about accessibility assistance are welcome. 

Safety and Security

The Department of Safety and Security provides Dartmouth with professional safety and security services that include incident response, investigation, and follow-up of all security-related matters that come to our attention. We strive to engage our community via education, information sharing, and training programs, as our strongest ally in deterrence and prevention.

Health and Wellness

In order to maintain a healthy lifestyle we encourage students to think about their social, mental, and physical wellness.

Diversity and Inclusion

Many cultures, one community. At Dartmouth, differences are embraced and ideas are challenged. Our diverse community of students, faculty, and staff come together to share perspectives, learn, and grow.
