What Is Special Interest Housing?
Randolph-Macon's Special Interest Housing Program provides opportunities for students with special educational interests in common to live together in college-owned houses on campus. Beginning in Fall 2013, the Office of Residence Life & Housing will support two houses and will work with students and their advisors throughout the year. All sophomores, juniors and seniors in good standing are eligible to participate in this unique housing opportunity.

The application process for those students interested will vary based off the house, but it could include documentation of how the group will teach or share what they are learning with the College community, as well as how they will record, report and evaluate their accomplishments with Residence Life professional staff.What do I need to do if I am Interested?
