Residence Life

Residential Neighborhoods Overview

Elon's residential campus includes seven different "neighborhoods." Each neighborhood offers a unique experience, with a cluster of residences and common spaces that form intimate communities of students connected by a common set of themes and shared interactions.

Colonnades Neighborhood. Students from all four academic classes live together "on the geo" in communities surrounding the geothermal field adjacent to the Koury Business Center. In the coming years, we envision this neighborhood's programs and experiences will increasingly support Elon’s commitment to sustainability.

Danieley Neighborhood. Situated along Lake Verona, first-year students and sophomores are able to experience a community far from typical. Leadership is the focus of the neighborhood and its residential experience aims to inspire residents to become active and engaged citizens in their communities.

Global Neighborhood. The international theme of world cultures and languages is the focus of this neighborhood on the shores of Lake Mary Nell. The majority of the students in the neighborhood are first-year students taking the Core Curriculum global experience course together.

Historic Neighborhood. In the core of the original campus, first-year students live in the traditional Elon College residences with the theme of Elon traditions and history. Many of these students enroll in the first year English or Math Core courses together.

Loy Neighborhood. Headquarters for fraternities and sororities, with a leadership & service theme.

Oaks Neighborhood. Juniors and some sophomores live in apartments between the Fine Arts Center and Elon West, and focus on Elon Experiences – study abroad, internships, leadership, service, undergraduate research.

Station at Mill Point. Seniors and some juniors reside in apartments in a self-governed community as they complete capstone courses, and prepare to engage in careers and experiences, and to be Elon alumni.
